Neri is a large and flourishing village in the Waroda tahsil, situated on the Gondur, a small tributary of the Andhari river 9.65 km. (six miles) south-east of Cimur and 62.76 km. (39 miles) from Waroda town. The population of the village was 5,083 in 1961. The village is divided into two parts, the old and the new, on account of a large tank or talav and extensive stretch of paddy cultivation in between. It is recorded that the place had two old forts in ruins, but to-day nothing remains to indicate their existence. By the side of the talav there is an old temple of no small size and beauty, the pillars and carvings of which resemble those met with in the Ajanta Cave temples. It is  dedicated to Siva who is represented by a linga symbol. Though popularly known as Hemadpanti, it bears great resemblance to the Calukyan style. Lying in the open in the village there is a disfigured image of Siva riding on a bull. Recently an idol of a goddess was. discovered in the land of one Kesavrav Birevar. It is four-handed with an inscription at the base which appears to be of a later date. The idol is a fine piece of sculpture. Of more modern construction there are some Pancal tombs in which husband and wife have been laid side by side. The village contains some families of Pancals and Kostis who manufacture brass and copper vessels and cotton cloth. On Wednesdays a weekly market is held, there being a considerable trade in these goods and also in rice which is largely grown here. It shares with Cimur the honour of being the favourite residential quarter of this half of the tahsil. There is a middle school, a dispensary and a post office. It is connected with Waroda and Cimur by good roads, buses plying all the year round.
