Ahmednagar (often shortened to Nagar) is located about 117 km (73 miles) northeast of Pune in an agricultural and industrial district. A drive through downtown Ahmednagar is a challenging obstacle course round yellow and red S.T. buses, trucks spewing forth smoky exhaust, three-wheeled motorized rickshaws, scooters, and bicycles that materialize out of nowhere, horse-drawn tongas, and the ever-present stray cow or dog. If there is enough rain, village fields are green with millet, wheat, sugar cane, mangos, and other fruits and flowers. Scooter factories and other industrial plants, as well as a flurry of television antennas, now dot the landscape.

Meher Baba first visited the Ahmednagar area in 1923, staying at Khushru Quarters, the present site of the Avatar Meher Baba Perpetual Public Charitable Trust. Throughout the years, He made Ahmednagar a center for His work, first at Meherabad near the village of Arangaon, 10 km (6 miles) to the south, and later at Meherazad near the village of Pimpalgaon-Malvi, 14 km (9 miles) to the north.
