Nandgaon Peth.-Amraoti taluk, is almost 7 miles from Amraoti on the Morsi road, and is inhabited by a large number of Muhammadans, the chief of whom is Syed Kasim, the jagirdar of the neighbouring villages of Kathora and Takli. The population is 4575. A bazar is held on Tuesday, Friday and Sunday. Two Hindu temples, a masjid and the tomb of a Muhammadan saint are supported by service inams.
Nandgaon Kaad.-Taluk Chandur: houses 794, population 3435, has a first-class police station, sub-registry, Marathi school, and post, office, a public sarai and a cattle pound. The village has one police patel but is divided into eight munds or khels, each with a separate revenue patel. One Haji Ghazi Aolia is buried here, and there is also a combined temple of Khandeshwar, Devi and Narsinh with a common sabhamandap situated ona hillock on the outskirts of the village. This is said to be Hemadpanthi, a common tradition of any
old temple; as a matter of fact it is probably not more than 200 years old. In modern times a pirzada known as Mati Mile Miyan lived here. The words mean "mixed with dirt" and are a term of abuse among women locally. The name was doubtless descriptive of the
pir, though one may suppose it was assumed with some suggestion of "Ashes to ashes, dust to dust." A tomb has been built over his remains, and an urs is held annually which is largely frequented. His son at present lives in the village. Nandgaon is situated in the rocky portion of Chandur taluk and in time of scarcity is one of the places to be attended to first.
Ner Pinglai.-Taluk Morsi: houses 1252, population 5408. The second name has been given to distinguish it from Ner Parsopant in the Yeotmal District, and is taken from a temple of Pinglai Devi situated on a small hill on the borders of Ner and Siwarkhed. The temple, though not as sometimes said Hemidpanthi, is an old one, and is the scene of two fairs in the year, one at Dasahra and one at Chaitra
Paurnima, at which about five thousand people collect. Beside it is a small tank. A math for the accommodation of pilgrims has been built by the late Guru Gangadhar at a cost of about Rs. 20,000 and is supported by an inam of Rs. 150. Baris, Mali's, Wanis and a few Musalmans reside in the town, which has, in addition to the usual Marathi school and post office, and Urdu school. The weekly bazar is held on Thursday, and there is a sarai at Ner. Sawarkhed, the neighbouring village, which is 21 miles from Amraoti by the Morsi high road, has a dak bungalow. The proposed new railway line will have a station near here.
