Ontology can be defined as hierarchical representation of classes, sub classes, their properties and instances. It has led to understanding the concepts of given domain, deriving relationships and representing them in machine interpretable language. Ontologies are associated with different languages that are used in mapping of multiple ontologies. Several applications of ontologies have led towards realization of semantic web. The current web (2.0) is approaching towards semantic web (3.0) that performs intelligent search and stores results in distributed databases. 
The paper makes readers aware of various aspects of ontology like types of ontology, ontology development life cycle phases, activities involved in ontology development and ontology engineering tools. Ontology engineering contributes to meaningful search and provides with open source tools for deploying and building ontologies.
