Nijampur, about 16 km. (10 miles) north-east of Pimpalner, is a village in Sakri taluka with 3,213 souls in 1961. It is said to have derived its present name from Nizam-ul-Mulk who had halted here for some time. In the beginning of the 17th century (1610) it was described as the first great town between Surat and Agra and was inhabited by many a wealthy money-lenders. To-day Nijampur is shorn of all its glory and prosperity and is no more than a small ordinary village. There are three primary schools, two Marathi and 0ne Urdu, and a sub-post office.

Fragments of hemadpanti temples found scattered throughout the village indicate that the place was of some consequence before the advent of the Muslims. The village has a few temples dedicated to various deities but those dedicated to Vitthal Rakhumai, Krishna, Parasnath and Gupteshvar are the only ones of any note. The first one of these is a double storeyed edifice maintained by the Nijampurkars. The idol in the Krishna temple has a richly ornamented brass Prabhaval of excellent design. Tire antique shrine of Parasnath, 23rd Jain tirthankar, now devoid of idol, is a structure of stone and cement of 22.86 metres X 17.98 metres (75 feet X 59 feet) dimensions. Of the Gupteshvar shrine it is said that it was uncovered from the ground when a certain resident of Nijampur dreamt of its existence. The village has also an old gadhi, now in utter ruins, and a spring called Sakharjira whose waters are palatable.
