Thermal behaviour of the NdGaO3 crystal structure has been precisely investigated by means of the high-resolution powder diffraction technique using synchrotron radiation in the wide temperature range 12-1223 K. The diffraction experiments were carried out at the powder diffractometer at B2 line (HASYLAB/DESY). It was shown that NdGaO3 possesses orthorhombically distorted GdFeO3 type of structure (sp. group Pbnm, Z=4) in the whole temperature range investigated. Temperature variations of the lattice parameters and cell volume were found to be anisotropically and nonlinearly increasing with the temperature.
