1325 Inanda (1934 NR) is a main-belt asteroid discovered on July 14, 1934, by Jackson, C. at Johannesburg (UO).

The light curve of 1325 Inanda shows a periodicity of 141.6 ± 0.2 hours, during which time the brightness of the object varies by 0.4/0.8 in magnitude.[2] An occultation on 2007 November 12 suggested that Inanda could be a binary asteroid.[3]
