Nandeṛ. Sikh place of pilgrimage, c.320 km. NW of Hyderabad, India. In July or Aug., 1707 CE, Gurū Gobind Siṅgh arrived in Nandeṛ, now in the S. Indian state of Mahārāṣṭra, on the banks of the river Godāvarī. Here he met the bairāgī (Hindu renunciant) Madho Dās, who became his follower, taking the name Bandā Siṅgh. At Nandeṛ, Gurū Gobind Siṅgh was stabbed by a Pathān, and, although at first the wound apparently healed, he died on 7 Oct. 1708. In Nandeṛ there are several sites revered by Sikhs.
