Faria Bagh Palace, Ahmednagar


The Faria Bagh Palace is a lovely piece of work done in memory of Burhan Shah, the son of Ahmed Nizam Shah – founder of Ahmednagar. At a tender age of seven, Burhan Shah succeeded his father to the throne, post his death in 1508, and took over the Nizam Shahi Dynasty.Burhan Shah was notoriously known to make an agreement with his father’s enemy – the Raja of Vijaynagar. He waged many wars with the Bijapur Kings and the Mughals during his reign.The Faria Bagh Palace is octagonal in shape and has a large hall structured in the form of a dome. The monument is built in rough stone and plastered with the help of Stucco.The Nizam Shahi Kings used this palace as a recreational site for playing chess and bathing in the surrounding lakes.
