The Nizamabad Fort is located in the Nizamabad district of Telangana. The place is at a distance of some 200 kilometres far from the capital city, Hyderabad and you have to travel towards the north west of it to reach Nizamabad. The place lies very close to the state border of Maharashtra.
One among the many impressive historical monuments is the very striking Nizamabad Fort of the city, Nizamabad. The Nizamabad Fort was constructed on the top of a small hill located somewhat to the south west of the town, during the 10th century AD. The kings of the ancient dynasty, Rashtraputha, built this amazing citadel during the period of their absolute control over these areas.
The Fort has its head very high with a height of about 300 meters. There are a number of rulers who enjoyed their authority over this awe inspiring construction because of the constant change of the ruling power in the area. So the control of the Fort had been in numerous hands of different rulers from a list of dynasties.
A lot of changes to the fort's architectural design have been made to the fort over a period of several hundred years. Accounting to the religious sites present within the fort confines, the Nizamabad Fort is also known for its historical significance. The fort was originally developed on a temple of Lord Ram. The Sri Ramulavari Temple within the fort compound happens to be rather popular with local people. The temple has vast corridors, mundaps and also the mahamundaps. Another significance is that the temple was actually built by the well known Indian leader Chatrapathi Shivaji.
