Hingoli

One of the youngest districts of Maharashtra, Hingoli is still in the process of establishing itself. Aundha Nagnath Jyotirling, which attracts pilgrims from all over the country, is considered a fine specimen of Hemadpanthi style, which is credited with the construction of many excellent pieces of sculpture. Narsi Namdev or Barashiv Hanuman are some of the holy places which witness a constant stream of devotees. When Marathwada was suffering from the Nizam’s outlaw Razakar atrocities, Hingoli, Bamni, Talani, Anjegaon, Kahergaon and Lohegaon were in the forefront of the Hyderabad Freedom Struggle for overthrowing the yokel of slavery. This district is famed for its production of jowar and cotton.
