The yatris were put up in a comfortable lodge and they used the opportunity to do their laundry, replenish supplies and prepare for the next hectic stretch to Shirdi and Nashik. The evening saw the padayatris and many more break the Eid fast with Sri M after Sufi bhajans.
Despite being little, Ahmednagar is a historic place, dotted with many places of interest. The padayatris, in small groups of two or three, toured the popular spots including the Gorakshanath Gad, an old temple of Gorakshanath Maharaj located on a hill nearby with the spectacular views of the city, and the Ahmednagar Fort - built by Ahmed Nizam Shah in 1490 -one of the best-designed and most impregnable forts in India.
Drawbridges access two entrances to the unassailable fort. A target of countless invasions, the Ahmednagar Fort has taken many blows and come out relatively unscathed. And, lastly, some visited Meherabad, where the samadhi of the spiritual master Meher Baba is located.
