More on Ahmednagar

History

Ahmednagar was found by Ahmed Nizam Shah I in 1494. He found the new town on the battlefield where he defeated the Bahamani Armies. Ahmed later established the Nizam Shahi Dynasty, which started from the very same place. The Dynasty ruled the place until the Mughal Conquest by emperor Shah Jahan in 1636. The Mughal Empire also saw the start of its end in the Ahmednagar, with the death of Aurangzeb. The Burial of Aurangzeb is located in Khultabad marked by a small monument. Later came the Nizams of Hyderabad who were overthrown by the Peshwas. Ahmednagar was invaded by the British with the help of General Wellesley. The once almost Invulnerable Ahmednagar was used by the British to captivate Jawaharlal Nehru along with some other Nationalists in a house arrest. This fort is where Nehru wrote his book “The Discovery of India”.
