The name of the town Khammam has been derived from “Kambam Mettu” to “Kammammet” or “Khammam Mettu” to the present “Khammam city.” Nelakondapalli gains religious importance as it is associated with Mahabharata. Excavations conducted in this place unearthed several idols, viharas and stupas belonging to Buddhism. Bhadrachalam located on the banks of Godavari river has a famous Sri Seetharam temple. The temple in Bhadrachalam is closely connected with the life of the 17th-century saint composer Kancharla Gopanna who was known as Bhakta Ramadas. The 1000-year-old Khammam Fort was built during Kakatiyas’ regime. It is located on Stambhadri hill. The fort displays the influences of Hindu and Islam architecture, which are spectacular.
