A good destination

I had been to Nizamabad by Train in September 2015. Nizamabad is a very important historical place in the map of the newly-carved Telangana state. It is easily accessible through all the three modes of Transport i.e Road, rail and air. APSRTC buses are available practically every 20 minutes from the Hyderabad bus station, among other places. Regular train services are available from both Kacheguda and Secunderabad railway station, among other places. The must-visit attractions in and around Nizamabad include Nizamsagar and Pocharam wildlife sanctuary. Nizam Sagar is located 7 kilometers south-west of Nizamabad and the dam is situated on Achampet village. The dam is constructed on river Manjira, which is a major tributary of the Godavari river. The Pocharam wildlife sanctuary is located in between Medak and Nizamabad districts and houses a large number of species of flora and fauna. The best time to visit Nizamabad is between September to February.

Indur a historic place

Nizamabad which has historic name Indur is quite historic place and has good places to watch. Firstly I went to fort at Nizamabad which has sri ram temple which was quite ancient and mosque at gandhi chowk is well and quiet beautiful. I also went to lord shiva temple at Kanteswar which is about 200 years old and friends I enjoyed a lot in Nizamabad by arts and architecture. You can also visit basar which is quite famous for goddesses saraswati. I Assure you that you can surely enjoy a visit at Nizamabad.

Nizamabad Overview

Nizamabad is a city and district located in the state of Telangana. It is also the commercial marketing centre of Andhra Pradesh and was known by the name of Induru, earlier. In the year 1905 it was renamed Nizamabad after the Nizam of Hyderabad at that time, Asaf Jah VI.

The Rashtrakutas ruled Nizamabad in the ancient times and later there was a railway line constructed here that connected Hyderabad and Mumbai with Nizamabad as the main station. The British constructed this railway line in 1905. Some of the main routes that connect different cities are located here like the National Highway 7 that connects Kanyakumari and Varanasi.

Some of the popular tourist attractions here include the Nizam Sagar Dam that is constructed on the river Manjira and the ancient reservoir of Ali Sagar, which was built during the tenure of the Nizam. Other than these, there are some ancient places of attraction like the Nizamabad Fort of the 10th century located on the south-western part of the town. This fort has some ancient artefacts related to Jainism.

Kanteshwar is a nearby region of Nizamabad and is known for the ancient temple, which is said to be about 500 years old. This temple is popular for its architecture and is dedicated to Neela Kanteshwar that is Lord Shiva. This ancient temple was constructed by Satakarni-II, the Satavahana King. This ancient temple is the site of one of the most celebrated festivals, Rathasaptami.

The population of Nizamabad consists of Muslims as well but Hindus dominate the population mix. One of the most important places for the Muslim community includes the Bada Pahad Dargah, which is also an attraction. The mausoleum of Syed Sadullah Hussaini lies between the hills of Varni and Chandur.

The popular festivals celebrated here are Janda and Neelkantheshwara festivals. The Janda festival here lasts for 15 days during the months of August and September while the festival of Neelakantheshwara is celebrated for 2 days during the time of Rathasaptami in January and February.

The temple of Sarangapuram attracts more than 10,000 devotees at the time of the Sri Ramanavami festival. Nizamabad experiences a tropical climate throughout the year and the best time to visit this place is during the winter season.
