Before we get started with telangana tourism of mahabubnagar district, let’s have a introduction of it.
Note: – Mahabubnagar = Mahbubnagar.
Mahabubnagar, Which was formerly known as “Rukmammapet” or “Palamoor” is the District Head quarter town.
Mahabubnagar is the largest district in Telangana state in terms of area (18432.00 sq. km) covered.
The district has population of 40,53,028 as per the 2011 census which accounts for 11.52% of the total population of the State with 15.34% decadal growth.
The name was changed to Mahabubnagar in honour of Mir Mahbub Ali Khan Asaf Jah VI, the Nizam of Hyderabad (1869-1911 AD). During the Nizam era, the people of this area used to sell milk, so it was named as “Palamoor”.
History: The region was at the core of the Satavahana dynasty from 221 BC to 218 AD, and also a large part of the Chalukya dynasty from the 5th to the 11th century AD. The region was later part of the Kingdom of Golkonda (c. 1364 – 1512 AD), with its capital city Golkonda located near Hyderabad.In 1518 it came under control of the Qutb Shahi dynasty, which reigned until 1687. The region was then a part of Hyderabad State, ruled by the Asaf Jahi dynasty, from 1724 to 1948. Mahbubnagar was most likely an historically Buddhist area, as many historic temples were destroyed by the Asaf Jahi rulers.
