Nanded is located in the state of Maharashtra. It is believed that the name Nanded would have originated from the mythological character, Nandi, the carrier of Lord Shiva. Nandi performed penance on the banks of River Godavari and thus Nandi Tat became Nanded. Nanded is also a prominent pilgrimage spot for the Sikh community. A Sikh Gurudwara is erected at the place where Shri Guru Govindsinghji Maharaj, the last Sikh Guru, passed away in 1708. Nanded is also famous for the Kandhar fort, built by the Rashtrakuta King Krishna III of Malkhed, Banganga waterfall on the Banganga River, the Masjid of Biloli, also known as the Hazrat Nawab Sarfaraz Khan Sahid Masjid which is said to have been constructed about 330 years back by Sarfaraz Khan, an officer in the army of Aurangzeb, and the Haji Saiyya Saravar Magadum Dargah also known as Kandhar Dargah constructed about 750 years ago.
