Welcome to Khammam City Info

Welcome to Khammam, it is the headquarter of Khammam District in Andhra Pradesh state. Khammam is declared as Municipal Corporation recently.

History

The name of Khammam is derived from the name of the temple 'Narsimhadri', later then it was termed as 'Stambadhri' which has an ancient temple of Narasimha Swamy on its top. This temple existed since Treta Yuga. The Big vertical rock under the temple is known as 'KAMBA'(Urdu) which literally means pillar. The name of the town Khammam has been derived from 'Kambam Mettu' to ' Kammammet' or 'Khammam Mettu' to the present 'Khammam'. The Khammam City is located on the banks of a river called Munneru which is a tributary of the Krishna River. There is a festival held in Khammam remembering the old name "Stambhadri ossavalu"
Khammam town which was the seat of Taluk Administration was part of the larger Warangal District, till 1 October 1953. Five taluks of the Warangal district viz., Khammam, Madhira, Yellandu, Burgampadu and Paloncha (Now Kothagudem) were carved out and a new district Khammam with Khammam as District Headquarters. In 1959 Bhadrachalam Revenue Division consisting Bhadrachalam and Nuguru Venkatapuram Taluks of East Godawari district, which were on the other side of the river Godavari were merged into Khammam on grounds of geographical contiguity and administrative viability.
