Nizamabad Info

  • State: Andhra Pradesh
  • Famous for/as: Heritage
Nizamabad is a city and district located in the state of Andhra Pradesh. 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.
