There is a holy cross atop a hill at the entrance of the village.
Legend says – Deadly plague had been haunting the villages around Nandgad and had brought many deaths. Tired of these deadly occurring, the people here prayed and vowed to God that they would erect Christ’s cross on one of the hills. To everyone’s astonishment that the plague really disappeared and haunts them no more. Hence, with grateful heart and touched soul, the people of Nandgad really did erect Christ’s cross on the hill.
