One of the most sacred places in Sikhism, lakhs of devotees throng Nanded to visit the serene Hazoor Sahib Gurudwara; one of the Panj Takhts (five seats of higher authority). Takht Sachkhand is the place where the last Sikh Guru, Sri Gobind Singhji passed on the baton to Guru Granth Sahib before his death in 1708. The inner room of the Takht Sahib is called ‘Angitha Sahib’ and is built over the place where Sri Guru Gobind Singh was cremated. Sri Guru Granth Sahib and the Sri Dasam Granth are placed inside this Gurudwara that was constructed by Maharaja Ranjit Singh in earlier 1830s. Based on the banks of Godavari River, Nanded has many other tourist attractions like Mahurgad, the birthplace of Renuka Mata; more than 3 centuries old Biloli Masjid, Shiva Temple at Aundha Nagnath, hot water springs at Unkeshvar, Sahastrakund waterfall, Kinwat National Park, Lord Siddheshwar Temple in Hottal, Nanded Fort, Malegaon, Kandhar Fort and Isapur Dam. Weather condition in Nanded are usually extreme and so it is scorching hot during summers (March to May) and chilly during winters (November to February). While the district is open for tourists and devotees throughout the year; winters are more pleasant for a visit. Nanded is situated over 220 kilometres away from Akola but is very easily accessible by road and railways.
