Rajnandgaon , city, west-central Chhattisgarh state, east-central India. It lies in a region of fertile farmland in the western part of the Chhattisgarh Plain and is drained by several small tributaries of the Seonath River, which flows just to the south of the city.

Rajnandgaon was ruled by a dynasty of Hindu caretakers (mahant s) and Gond rajas (chiefs). Succession was by adoption.
