Ahmednuggur, a district and city in the province of Auzungabad in the Bombay Presidency, India. The city is on the river Seena, and is distant 122 miles from Bombay, on the Great Indian Peninsular Railway. 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.
