Wanaparthy is a municipal town in Mahbubnagar district of Telangana, India. It covers an area of about 27.34 square miles (70.8 km2).

History[edit]

Wanaparthy was governed by a feudal ruler, Raja of Wanaparthy, Raja Rameshwar Rao II, who was a vassal of the Nizam of Hyderabad. Wanaparthy was one of the 14 major Zamindari segments in Telangana in Post-Independent India. Raja died on November 22, 1922 and his successor, Krishna Dev was a minor, so his estate was managed by the Court as his ward. Krishna Dev expired before attaining adulthood and the crown passed on to his son Rameshwar Rao III. Soon after India abolished all regal titles.
