Nanded is a city and the headquarters of Nanded district situated in the south-eastern part of the state of Maharashtra. Bordering Andhra Pradesh on the east and Karnataka to the south, it is the second largest city in the Marathwada region. The name of the destination was derived from the place Nandi Tat on the River Godavari.

The region of Nanded is popular because of the Hazur Sahib Gurudwara built here where the last Sikh Guru, Shri Guru Govindsinghji Maharaj, passed away. Located around 650 km from Mumbai and 270 km from Hyderabad, Nanded is a place with religious importance because it is also the birthplace of three famous Maratha saint poets Vishnupant Shesa, Raghunath Shesha and Vaman Pandit.    

Nanded was ruled by the Nandas. It was also a part of the Mauryan Empire when King Asoka ruled from 272 to 231 BC. The Andhrabhrtyas or Satvahanas took control of the city during the 1st century AD. The Chalukya King, Nanddeva, ruled the city during the 4th century AD.

Nanded is also a major learning centre of Sanskrit and is a popular educational centre of Maharashtra. Because of this students from the neighbouring regions of Nizamabad and Adilabad come to this place for education and especially for Sanskrit teachings. The population of Nanded comprises of different communities of Hindus, Muslims, Buddhists, Sikhs and Jains.

One of the popular places here is Takhat Sachkhand Shri Hazur Abchalnagar Sahib, which is also the main Gurudwara and a high seat of authority of the Sikh community. Surrounded by the river Godavari on three sides is the Nanded Fort, which is located at a distance of 4 km and is popular for its garden and water works inside.        

Located at a distance of about 2.5 km from the village of Mahur is the temple of Renuka Devi. This ancient temple is said to be around 800 years old and was built by a Yadava King from Devgiri. Other than the ancient temple, there is the masjid of Hazrat Nawab Sarfaraz Khan that was constructed around 330 years back. The stone masjid was dedicated to Sarfaraz Khan, an officer in Aurangzeb’s army. Located 130 km from Nanded is Vajinath, which is an important pilgrimage centre.    

Situated in the heart of the town is Kandhar, which is famous for its ancient forts. Rashtrakuta King Krishna III managed the construction and design of the fort and one of such designs was the ditch filled with water surrounding the fort. The popular fair, Malegaon Yatra, is held every year in honour of Lord Khandoba in Loha Taluka of Malegoan that is located 57 km from Nanded.
