Kollapur[1] region is an area spanning the Nallamala forest area on the banks of the river Krishna in the Mahbubnagar district, in the state of Telangana India. The Someshwara, Sangameshwara, and Malleshwara temples are in this region, with traces of architectural treasures from the 2nd century BC. Hundreds of ancient temples are visible in the area, mainly built over 1,500 years ago. Due to similar broad roads and surrounding tree plantations, people used to refer to Kollapur as Telangana Mysore (a reference to the larger city of Mysore).

Constituency[edit]

There are five mandals or governing districts, namely Kodair, Kollapur, Pangal, Peddakothapalle, and Weepanagandla. The population of 246,248 is distributed among 116 villages.

Religion[edit]

This region is predominately Hindu population with several Temples.

History[edit]

The Kollapur region played a considerable role in Nizam's era (Nizam of Hyderabad, royal ruler prior to the British taking over). Kollapur has produced historic persons of note such as Kotla Venkata Subbaiah, who worked as a mantri, or secretary, to the Raja of Kollapur. In addition, Miyyapuram Rama Krishna Rao, a Telugu Brahmin, who worked as a mantri to the Raja of Kollapur after Kotla Venkata Subbaiah. Kotla Kistaiah worked as tahasildar (revenue and tax official) to the same Raja.

Development[edit]

A massive water lift irrigation project is near Kollapur. The Somasila temple is located just 9 km from Kollapur. A bitumen (asphalt) road connects Kollapur to Somasila. Kollapur has a Helipad and Aerodrome (fixed wing airport) that dates back to the early 1900s.

Agriculture[edit]

Kotla families were the immigrants from the East Godavari-AP/Maharashtra/Bengal/Orissa region who served the Kollapur cabinet and ministry for over three generations. Agriculture is difficult in the Kollapur region due to the lack of adequate ground water resources and acute shortage of rainfall almost every year. The land is fertile in certain places due to water brought through canals connected to water lift irrigation projects.

Attractions[edit]

Somasila - There are 15 temples all housing Shivalingas (stones representing Lord Shiva). The temples range in date between the 7th and 17th centuries A.D. Sivarathri & Karthika Pourpami (full moon celebrations) are celebrated with much fervor. One temple was moved from the old Somasila village to higher ground to protect it from the waters of the Srisailam Reservoir.

The Madhava Swamy temple at Kollapur was originally built by the Rajas of Jetprole in the 16th century A.D. on the left bank of the river Krishna, at Manchalakatta. Carved sculptures are on all the temple walls depicting the 24 normal aspects of Vishnu. The Dasa-Avatars are located here, described as carvings of Vishnu showing ten incarnations of the Lord Vishnu. Various pillars supporting the Mandapa (outdoor pavilion) and the Garudalaya (style of building) adds interest to the temple complex. Due to the rising water levels under the Srisailam project reservoir, this temple was taken apart and rebuilt at Kollapur.

Singavatnam which is 9 km (5 miles) distance from Kollapur is home to the Sri Laxmi Narsimha Swamy temple and the reservoir, which serves nine villages by providing water for crops.

Jetprole, about 15 km distance from Kollapur, is home to the ancient Sri Venugopala Swamy temple and is a riverside complex.

In Miyyapuram about 26 km (15 miles) distance from Kollapur, the temple of the goddess Satyammathalli ( goddess Chowdeshwari Devi ) is located on a hilltop. This is a very ancient temple and is believed to have been built few centuries ago by 'Nandavarikas', ancestors of late Miyyapuram Rama Krishna Rao. There are celebrations at the temple during the 'Dashera' festival (Celebration of the victory of Good over Evil, held in September or October). From the temple of Satyammathalli, the Krishna River can be seen.

Ankalamma Temple is located near Kollapur. The journey from Kollapur requires travel by land, river and ends with a hike to the temple.

Notable People[edit]

Jupally Krishna Rao, a Member of the Legislative Assembly in the Telangana Legislative Assembly, was born in Pedda Dagada, a village in the Kollapur region. The late Sri Kotla Subramanyam Naidu served in the Legislative Council of the Isle of Man for ten years.

Dr. Venu Gopal Rao Miyyapuram from Kollapur, who migrated to Canada, was awarded his doctorate from Alberta University. The industrialist and Environmentalist Ramesh Miyyapuram of Shivanth group, hails from Kollapur.

Originally born in Kollapur, professor KJ Reddy (Jayaram Reddy Katta), works at Harvard and University of Wyoming, to study natural resources issues that pose major challenges to maintain a sustainable environment.

Kollapur has also produced poets like the late Rangineni Subrahmanyam, a pupil of Dr. C Narayana Reddy and Rangineni Manmohan.
