Warangal Overview

Warangal District is situated in Telangana. It is one of the largest cities of Telangana. The largest Municipal Corporation of the state is in Warangal district that encompasses three cities, namely Warangal, Kazipet and Hanamakonda.


According to legend, Warangal and Hanamkonda were linked with the dynasties of the Great Vishnukundins. Warangal, known as Orukal during the 18th century AD, was a capital city of the Yadava King of Tuluva. This city was also ruled by the Kakatiyas or Ganapathis, from the middle of the 12th century AD up to two hundred years.


Few kings like Polaraja Rudra Deva-I, Rani Rudrama Devi, Ganapathi Deva and Prathaparudra were able to occupy great positions in Warangal History. Though the city has seen phases of success under the rule of several kings, historians have divided the development of the city into four stages on the basis of important historical events and growth of the city.

Every two years, the district hosts a Samakka-Sarakka Jatara (congregation), commemorating the fight of a mother-daughter duo with the reigning ruler over injustice. Besides this, the Batkamma festival is an important festival of this place.

Warangal has several ancient temples including Thousand Pillars Temple, Swayambhu Temple, Rayaparthy Shiva Temple, Siddeshwara Temple, Inavolu Temple, Veeranarayana Temple, which are popular tourist attractions.
