Karimnagar region was originally called as Elagandala. It was ruled by Western Chalukyas and was also part of the great Satavahana Empire. Later, the Nizams of Hyderabad changed the name of this region to Karimnagar, which was derived from the name Syed Karimullah Shah SahebQuiladar.

The district is spread across an area of 2,128 square kilometres and shares boundaries with Jagtial and Peddapalli district on north, Warangal Urban district and Siddipet district on south, Rajanna District on the East and JayashankarBhupalpally District on west.

According to 2011 Census of India, the district has a population of 10, 05,711.



  Situated on the Manair River, Lower Manair Dam is indeed a tourist delight. The Manair River, which is a tributary of the Godavari River is home to a dam built at the confluence of Manair with the Mohedamada River. It is a popular picnic spot located close to Karimnagar. Located close to the left bank of river Manair near Karimnagar town, the hilltop fort of Elgandal was constructed during Kakatiya period, and it was later passed on to the hands of QutbShahis. There are two stone fortification walls, two mosques, two dilapidated temples, ammunition building, jail khana, wells and other structural edifices in this fort.

  Elgandala Fort is located on the banks of the Manair River amidst palm groves at a distance of 10 km from Karimnagar on the Kamareddy Road. The fort is historically important because five important Dynasties have ruled over it.



Vemulawada is a Mandal head quarters on the western part in Karimnagar district. It is located on the banks of Mulavagu Rivulet. The distance between Karimnagar town and Vemulawada is 35 Kilometers. Vemulawada was a capital city of Vemulawada Chalukyas dynasty between A.D 750-973.

The remnants of the temples and statues show that Chalukyas were great architects. The greatness of Vemulawada can be inferred from ten inscriptions from the various temples41.

In those inscriptions it is named as Lemulavatika, Lembulavade, Lembulavada. After the changes it is transformed into Lemulavada, Yemulada, Vemulavada. The oldest temples are located in Vemulawada in Karimnagar district.
