Ahmednagar is a city in the eponymous district in the Indian state of Maharashtra. Ahmednagar has been named after its founder Ahmad Nizam Shah I, who had founded the town in 1494 and established the Nizam Shahi Dynasty. The city still contains innumerable buildings from the Nizam Shahi period. The Ahmednagar Fort, which was famous in the British era as an impregnable building in which the imperial colonizers had housed Indian Nationalists like Jawaharlal Nehru before Indian independence, still stands proudly in the city as a museum. Pandit Nehru had written the famous book "The Discovery of India" during his confinement in this fort. The region is known for its sugar cultivation but often lapses into drought due to the lack of rainfall. The city serves as a strong military base as it houses the Indian Armoured Corps Centre & School, the Mechanised Infantry Regimental Centre, the Vehicle Research and Development Establishment and the Controllerate of Quality Assurance Vehicles. This historic city has many great places worth visiting. Chand Bibi Palace, Cavalry Tank Museum, Rehekuri Blackbuck Sanctuary, Ahmednagar Fort and Meherabad are few of the places in this area that attract tourists.
