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.
