Station is clean.
WiFi is available by RailWire. Lifts and Escalators have been operationalised.
Lodging facilities are good nearby the station. Also there are fairly good restaurants offering reasonable prices for food, just outside the station.
Places to visit in and around Aurangabad.
Bibi-ka-Maqbara--> A mausolem built for Aurangzeb's wife by her son.(12 km from Railway station)
2. Daulatabad Fort--> An archaeological site also known as Devagiri Fort, once a capital shifted by Mohd. Tughlaq.(30 km from station)
3. Ellora Caves--> a world heritage site consisting of caves and temples. It is around 38 km from Aurangabad and on the same route to Daulatabad. Hence can be covered in a single day alongwith Daulatabad. For Hindu pilgrims, Temple of Ghrishneshwara(one of the 12 jyotirlingas) is in the vicinity of Ellora caves.
4. Ajanta Caves--> Again a world heritage site consisting of cave paintings and stone carved idols. Near about 110km from aurangabad. I would advise to make a separate trip to it. Ajanta is also nearby Jalgaon Jn.
Tourist guidance centre is available on PF no 1 itself.

No extra coach added. Lot of rush. Even wait list people have boarded. It's like sleeper class.

you should travel that train during diwali time then you will believe that. I have traveled & all the waiting passengers were sleeping in gangway, near toilet and in between seats. I should have taken snap & posted it for you to believe.

Food Tips in "Ambarsari Tadka'.
1. Never Ever Forget to enjoy the God's own grace Food in Langar provided in The Darbaar sahib (Golden Temple) premises.
2. Brothers Dhabba or Bhrawan Dhabba, are two nearly identical restaurants right next to each other near Town Hall. Both highly rated. Brothers' "Amritsari Kulcha" is to literally die for.
3. Kesar da Dhaba. Located near the Golden
Temple, it offers good Punjabi food made in pure ghee. Daal Makhni is worth trying. Don't forget to try a glass of Lassi after a meal.
4. Bubby Dhaba, opposite Golden Temple (Just opposite the main entrance of Golden Temple). serves authentic Punjabi food at a very reasonable cost and ideally located, just few metres from the main entrance of the Holy Golden Temple.
5. Moolchand Fish Shop, Its Off the GT Road near Tourist Guesthouse. Find the Christchurch Cathedral (large red-and-green church, pretty conspicuous!) and keep walking, away from GT road. In about 2 minutes, you'll see a little shop selling fish. Open 08:00-23:00. This tiny place is the definition of hole-in-the wall. If it looks like it has been there for 50 years, it's because it has! They'll weigh out your fish based on how much you want to pay, fry it, put some delicious spices on it, and serve it with spicy green chutney and raw onions. A little hard to find, but worth it. About 50 rupees for a good-sized piece of fish, 70 rupees for a serving of chicken.
6. Gurdass Ram Jalebi wale (Pure vegetarian), Ahluwali Katra (very close to the main gate of Golden Temple). Eat Jalebis.... Only a indie sweet shop.
7. Kulcha Chole Dhaba (Pure vegetarian), Located at No. 1, Maqbool Road. Best Kulchas ever. Only a tandoori kulcha joint. No non veg at all.
PS: A end tip , Just don't Forget to enjoy the hot and tasty Amritsari Kulche Chholle. They are world famous. Doesn't matters from where you eat (obviously don't eat from Thela or footpath) , the taste will be somehow same and once for a lifetime.

Great. Been to Amritsar twice but never got a chance to taste this food. Longing since the time that program " Highway on my plate" showed all this Amritsari food. Have tasted the offering at the Temple though.

I Took BreakFast in the train as I travelled in D2 Coach on 9/03/2015 Delhi to Mathura. The Quality of Veg Breakfast was very good for the price i.e. 30 Rs for 2 Bread Butter and 2 Cutlets and the food was fresh and Piping Hot. Secondly, The Train Was Trolled By NCR's Controlling as three Freights were Kept Ahead of us at Chata , Ajhai and Vrindavan Road and train had to eventually wait at the outer of all these stations reached Mathura Jn at 9:15 a.m.
