Kattangoor is a village in Nalgonda district of the India state of Telangana. It is located in Kattangur mandal of Nalgonda division.[1]

Prior to the annexation of Hyderabad State by India, Muslims formed a significant portion of Kattangoor's population and Kattangoor was a strong centre for Razakars.[2] Along with neighbouring Nakrekal village, Kattangoor was captured from Hyderabad State by the Indian Army's Punjab Regiment on 17 September 1948.[3]
