Unknown destination to the world

It is a wonderful place in Telangana. The most important destinations are pillalamarri, jurala project and many forts in gadwal, alampur, wanaparthy kollapur. It seems to be the rural part but we can find all the heritage monument that are very famous but not known to the world. Here the climate is awesome and a great destination for peace lovers. It is the best place to visit with your friends, relatives or anyone. Universal. Places are their in this area.

Underdeveloped district with minimum facilities

Mahbubnagar is an underdeveloped district with bare minimum facilities for the tourists. There are old renowned temples worth watching but the accommodation and transportation to reach these areas are very poor. We can somehow reach with the help of our own transportation but accommodation is pathetic throughout Mahbubnagar.

Mahbubnagar Overview

Mahabubnagar, also known as Palamooru, is in the state of Telangana. Lying in the southern end of the State, Mahabubnagar is located at a distance of 100 km from the capital city of Hyderabad. Covering an area of 18,432 sq km, the district is located at an elevation of 498 metres.

The destination is surrounded by Rangareddy District in the north, Kurnool District in the south, Karnataka in the west and Nalgonda District in the east. Krishna and Tungabhadra are the two major rivers that flow through Mahabubnagar.

Mahabubnagar was known as Cholawadi or the land of the Cholas as it was the base of the Chola Kingdom in yesteryears. It was named after the former Nizam of Hyderabad, Mir Mahbub Ali Khan Asaf Jah VI, on 4th December 1890.

The history of Mahabubnagar dates back to the Satavahana Dynasty during 221 BC and 218 AD. Thereafter, the region was governed by the Chalukya Dynasty between the 5th and 11th centuries. The kingdom of Golconda, Qutb Shahi Dynasty and Asaf Jahi Dynasty also ruled the region.

Over 200 sites of the Megalithic Period are found in the destination. On the banks of River Krishna, Old Stone Age and New Stone Age sites have been excavated. Mahabubnagar is popular for innumerable diamond mines such as Golconda mine and is believed to be the place of origin of the famous Kohinoor diamond.

There are several religious and heritage sites in and around Mahabubnagar, dating back to time immemorial. Some of the notable centres of significant historical and religious importance are Jama Masjid, Medina Masjid, Mecca Masjid and Umamaheshwaram. Mallelatheertham and Koilsagar are the popular tourist sites. There is a 700 year old Pillalamarri great Banyan Tree, which is one of the important religious as well as tourist attractions.

Dance, music, cuisine and art and craft form the culture of Mahabubnagar. Lambadi, bonalu, kolattam and burrakatha are some of the popular dance forms here. Most of the populace in the destination include Hindus along with Muslims. Other than these, the tribes follow their own religion and worship nature.

Mahabubnagar is well connected with the capital city of Andhra Pradesh by roadways and railways. Mahabubnagar Railway Station is the closest station connected with various parts of the state and other major cities. The nearest airport to the destination is Shamshabad International Airport, which is located around 90 km away. Andhra Pradesh State Road Transport Corporation renders bus services from Hyderabad, Kurnool and Raichur.

Mahabubnagar experiences semi arid type of weather, during which winter months have temperate climatic conditions. The best time to visit Mahabubnagar is during the months of December and February.
