Telangana has a history of five thousand years
The state of Telangana has a history of five thousand years. Turning the pages of the past, we see that the influence of different dynasties from the Kakatiya dynasty to the Mughal Empire remains in this kingdom. If we consider the mythological significance, Warangal is an important place in the state. In the twelfth century, the capital city of the Kakatiya dynasty also had a temple with a thousand pillars. The goddess Rani Rudramama (Rudramamba) ruled for a long time in the kingdom of Warangal. This place is associated with the events of Ramayana and Mahabharata.
