dynasties of Great "Vishnukundins" and even

Indian History. During Eighth Century A.D.,
Warangal with an old name "Orukal" has served as Capital City
of Yadava king of the Kakatiyas
or Ganapatis making Warangal as Capital City. The name of Warangal "Orugallu" is said to be correct form
of Orukal which is the original designation ,the old town. The words the middle of the Warangal fort. The
line seems to have been in existence even earlier to the middle of 7th Century A.D. because the
Piligrim Hieun-Tsang,mentions the name of the Kingdom of "Danakakitya" in the South. The
family name Kakatiya is
derived from the local appellation of the Goddess Durga (Kakati).
After the fall of Bahamani Kingdom, Warangal fell to the "Qutab Shahis" of Golkonda and thereafter it has
the sway of Nizams dominations.

kings. The Historical events and development occurred in Warangal City. These are :-
