This fort is under military control and is in good condition. This place is closed for public. Army allows public to visit this fort on 26th January & 15th August every year. So be sure to visit this fort if you are in/near to Ahmednagar on these two days. This fort was built by Malik Shah Ahmed in 1427 and... More

I'm a foreigner learning India. I visited this place as I think this place has historic significance. The first PM after the modern independence, Jawaharlal Nehru, wrote the book here in a jail. I read the book, and got impressed by this location also. But... No visitor I met. Not well maintained it looks. It seems the first PM is... More

The cells are called as the Leaders Block and was used by the British during pre-independence to imprison political detainees. The highlight is the block which was used to detain Pt Jawahar Lal Nehru!!! It was... More

This Historic site is still an active Military Camp, so access is limited, but you can visit where Nehru was imprisoned, and view the rampart walls from the outside. I do wish they would do more to restore and maintain this great part of India's history.

Our national leaders who fought for freedom were kept under imprisonment here in this massive fort. It is under Army control now and the huge rooms in which the leaders spent their days are kept well maintained. As a mark of respect we have to remove our shoes out side before entering these rooms here. In Nehru's room the furniture... More
