Pandav Nagar is a residential colony in East Delhi, India. It is situated by the Main Mother Dairy Road and NH 24. The back side of the colony is across the road from the famous Akshardham Temple.


Earlier called Neem Ka Bangar(as mentioned in old land records), the colony is now called Pandav Nagar. The name "Pandav Nagar" originates from the term 'Pandavas' which according to Hindu Mythology was used during the Mahabharata Period, where the five Sons of King Pandu and his wife Kunti were together called as Pandavas.

Similarly, it is believed that the area of Pandav Nagar was inhabited after Indian independence in 1947, among others by a migrant Politician, during partition. He had five sons resembling a family as that of King Pandu of the Mahabharata. This inspired him to rename the area inhabited by him, i.e., Neem Ka Bangar as Pandav Nagar in 1948.
