History of Nizamabad

Founded in 1905 with the recognition of the Nizam’s dominion, Nizamabad was a part of the Princely state of Hyderabad and ruled by the Nizam of Hyderabad during the 18th century. The city also derives its name from the Nizam ul Mulk. Nizamabad became a separate district in 1876 following the reorganisation of Hyderabad state. After India’s independence in 1947, Hyderabad was annexed by the Indian Armed forces during Operation Polo, thus finally bringing an end to the reign of the Nizam.

- Since Nizamabad experiences tropical climate, it is usually hot for the better part of the year and make sure you are well equipped to beat the heat. Avoid visiting in the monsoon season.
- It is better to arrange a private cab and visit the tourist spots, since they are located outside the main town.
- Make sure you have enough information beforehand of wherever you go sightseeing or have a guide with you.
