Ahmednuggur is a city on the river Seena, around 120 miles from Mumbai (Bombay). Its ancient name, Bhingar, was changed by the Nizam Ahmed Shah (1494), who added new buildings. The eastern wall of Hussein Shah (1562), the mausoleum of Salabut Jung, and the palace of the Sultans still remain. About half a mile from the town is the fort, an oval stone structure nearly one mile in circumference. It was captured by Wellington in 1803, and in 1817 the whole place came under British rule. Plate to James Gray's 'Life in Bombay, and the neighbouring out-stations, etc' London: Richard Bentley, 1852.
