Though this palace is currently in ruins, it might have looked amazing in its glory days. It was built by the Ahmed Nizam Shah of the Nizami Sultanate around 1583 for his son Burhan Shah.

The palace is two storey's tall. It has a small pond outside the palace and a similar one inside. The corridors are very much identical but they have been spoilt due to graffiti. Works of idiots who want to let people know  that they were there.  On the side the ceiling is beautifully carved. The niche in the walls to hold the lamps is also beautifully done. This structure has got lots of doors and windows so that there is plenty of light in its premises.

Though the weather was hot outside, it was very much cool on the inside. We felt nice walking through the corridors.

Like all good trips come to an end so did this one. we then headed over the Swastik ST bus stand to board the 1:10 PM bus to Mumbai (Mumbai Central) The bus  journey takes its toll on our legs as you have to sit in one position for long time, but the good time we had exploring the history in Ahmednagar overwrote it.
