Constructed in 1916, by the Nizam of the erstwhile Hyderabad State, this Station was the Headquarters of the then Nizam's Guaranteed State Railway. It is believed that name Kachiguda Railway Station was given because of the Kachi Community which has a good population residing close to the station. The Kachis came as infantry and cavalry soldiers from Bundelkhand in the times of Alamgir and earlier Kings.

Endowed with central and side domes and accompanying minarets, this station has aspects of Gothic style architecture. The station handles trains originating for Indore, Bhopal, Aurangabad, Tirupati, Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi, Nanded, Nizamabad, Mangalore, and more.
