Nizāmābād About this sound pronunciation (Telugu: నిజామాబాదు), is a city and a municipal corporation in Nizamabad District in the state of Andhra Pradesh. It is the headquarters of the district. It has a population of 466,325.Nizamabad is the 3rd most populous city in the state of Telangana. Nizmabad city is one of 36 mandals in the Nizamabad district. It is located 171 kilometres (106 mi) north of state capital, Hyderabad.

History[edit]

Nizamabad was ruled by the king Nizam in the 8th century, and took its name from him. In 1905 the railway line between Secundrabad and Manmad was constructed. The railway station was named after then ruler of the Nizam state Nizam-ul-Mulk as Nizamabad.The railway connects Hyderabad and Mumbai and is a north-south corridor. The city is 161 km (100 mi) from Hyderabad and 640 km (400 mi) from Mumbai.

The Nizam Sagar dam was constructed in 1923 across the Manjira River at the village of Achampet. It irrigates 250,000 acres (1,000 km2; 390 sq mi) of land in Nizamabad District.

Nizamabad is in the north of Andhra Pradesh in the district of Nizāmābād. The region includes the towns of Bodhan, Armoor, Kamareddy, and Banswada. The Nizam Sugar Factory in Bodhan was at one time the largest in Asia. Bodhan is home to people from many cultural and religious backgrounds, consisting primarily of Muslims, Hindus,and Sikhs, as well as Christians and other religious communities. It was the capital during the Rashtrakuta Empire.

The district has a few prehistoric sites. The existence of a fairly developed megalithic culture has been discovered at Armoor, Yellareddy, and Kamareddy. Some of the major dynasties which extended their rule to the district include the Mauryas, Satavahanas, Rastrakutas and Chalukyas]] during the ancient period, the Kakatiyas, Bahmani Sultanate, Qutub Shahis, and Bidar Sultanate during the medieval period, and the Mughals and Asaf Jahis during the modern period. In 1876 the districts in the Nizam's dominion were reorganised, whereupon Nizamabad became a district. In 1905, the taluks of Nirmal and Narsapur were transferred to the newly created Adilabad district and Mudhol Taluk and a part of Banswada Taluk to Nanded district. The rest of Banswada was divided into Bodhan and Yellareddy taluks. While Bheemgal was merged into Armoor Taluk, other changes were made in Yellareddy and Kamareddy. The district in its new shape was christened as Nizambad.

Before 1979, there were seven taluks in the district. In December 1979 Armoor and Kamareddy taluks were bifurcated, and two new taluks, Bheemgal and Domakonda, were formed. With these two taluks, the number of taluks rose from seven to nine. In May 1985, 35 mandals were formed as smaller administrative units in the district. In August 1988, Yedapally Mandal was formed, bringing the total number of mandals to 36.
