It was one of the Deccan sultanates, which lasted until its conquest by Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in 1636. In 1759, the Peshwa of the Marathas obtained possession of the place from Nizam of Hyderabad. There were many battles fought over the fort of Ahmednagar, and it changed hands many times. Numerous Mughal-era buildings dot the environs. Ahmednagar Fort is considered the second most unimpregnable fort in India. During the Indian freedom struggle, a lot of Congress leaders, including Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru were imprisoned in this fort. During this confinement, Nehru wrote the famous book The Discovery of India. The fort has now been converted to a museum.
