History of Warangal

Warangal was under the rule of the Kakatiyas during the 12th to 14th century during which the area flourished with the Kakatiyas. It is a well known fact that the Kaktiyas were very fond of the arts and promoted them extensively during their rule. This transalated into the Kakatiya kings building many temples and forts which still stand today. The Kakatiya kings built an impressive fortress and stone archways across the town as also a few temples. The Mughal emperor Aurangazeb acquired Warangal as part of the Golconda sultanate in 1687 and it became a part of the state of Hyderabad. In 1948 Hyderabad was taken over the by Indian government and Telangana region where Warangal is situated became part of the state of Andhra Pradesh. Warangal has always been a cultural centre and has been patronized by all the great kings who ruled here.
