General definition (in Jainism)Source: HereNow4u: Lord Śrī Mahāvīra
Nandīpura (नन्दीपुर) or Naṃdīpura is the name of a village visited by Mahāvīra during his 24th Year as Kevalī.—Leaving Sāketa the Lord went to Kampilapura in Pāñcāla region. From there, wandering through Sūrasena, Mathurā, Nandīpura, etc, he came to Videha and spent the rainy season in Mithilā.
Jainism is an Indian religion of Dharma whose doctrine revolves around harmlessness (ahimsa) towards every living being. The two major branches (Digambara and Svetambara) of Jainism stimulate self-control (or, shramana, ‘self-reliance’) and spiritual development through a path of peace for the soul to progess to the ultimate goal.

Nāndīpura (नान्दीपुर) or Nāndīpurī.—It was identified by Buhler with an old fort of that name, just outside the Jhadeswar gate to the east of Broach. Pandit Bhagwanlal Indraji, however, suggested that Nāndīpurī was identical with Nandod in the Broach district, situated on the Karjan river in the old Rajpipla State. The statement in the Anjaneri Plates* of Jayabhaṭa III that Nāndīpurī-viṣaya included the village Toraṇaka (modern Toran. two miles to the north of Nandod) proves the correctness of the suggestion.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.
