Ahmad Shah Tomb -Naubatkhana Tradition

Before going to Ahmad Sah tomb there is a gate in which naubut is played. the Naubat used to be played in the opening and closing of Bhadra fort gates, in the time of Ahmed shah so that the people enter the fort before the gate are closed. Naubat is still played in the memory of Ahmed shah near his tomb. Here I met the sixth generation of musicians who still play the naubut with nagada hai sehnai. This tradition is going for 600 years.
