Nirmal is a prominent town in Adilabad district and the ancient history of the town boasts of a glorious past due to patronization of arts and culture by ruling nobility. The region was ruled by Kakatiyas, Chalukyas, The Qutubshahis and Nizams who have contributed immensely to the growth of cultural heritage.
This legacy of the heritage is seen in the town where the French established a strong presence by building a magnificent fort, which stands majestically till date. The French who were reportedly very much fascinated by scenic beauty of Mother Nature here built the Nirmal fort, which is also called as the Shamgarh fort. Recently the tourist department has provided amenities for tourists such as a clean pathway, cafeteria, drinking water facility and some landscaping works inside the fort.
