India history and geogprahy
Nandādevī (नन्दादेवी) is the name of a mountain peak and temple, and possible corresponds to the Goddess Nandābhagavatī, as mentioned in the “Plate of Lalitaśūradeva” (853-854 A.D.). King Nimbara is said to have been devoted to the god Dhūrjaṭi (Śiva) and the goddess Nandābhagavatī, i.e. Durgā, after whom one of the principal peaks in the Kumaun Division is called Nandādevī. There is a river called Nandākinī rising in the glaciers on the Western slope of the Triśūl in Pargana Bhahān, lat. 30˚ 16ʹ 10ʺ N., long .70˚ 46ʹ 5ʺ E. High up the source of this river there is the temple of Nandādevī, which is situated near Tantarakharak above the village of Satol in the Garhwal District. This may have been the goddess referred to [as Nandābhagavatī].
This inscribed copper plate (mentioning Nandādevī) is preserved in the temple of Yogabadarī (one of the Pañcabadarī) at Pāṇḍukeśvar (Pāṇḍukeśvara). The date is estimated 22nd December 853 A.D. and it records the grant of some land which was in the possession of a person named Denduvāka and was lying within the jurisdiction of the administrative unit called Thappalasāri forming a part of the viṣaya or district of Kārttikeyapura.Source: What is India: Epigraphia Indica volume XXXI (1955-56)
