Hyderabad has a rich history, which dates back to 500 BCE! According to the documented facts, Chalukya Dynasty was the first to rule Hyderabad, while the other dynasties, Satavahanas, Kakatiyas, and others followed the suit. Kakatiyas were predominant throughout the region, due to the excellent ruling they had opted for. After the Kakatiya regime got perished, due to the attacks launched by Muhammad bin Tughluq, Hyderabad became the center for various Islamic dynasties, from which they have ruled the entire Telugu region for centuries. Tughluq, Bahamani Sultanate, Qutub Shahi and Asif Jahi (Nizam) were the dynasties to rule Hyderabad and the surrounding regions. After the independence of India, the princely rule was ended and Hyderabad was merged into the independent country.
In 1956, Hyderabad was made the capital city of the merged Telangana and Andhra regions, the Andhra Pradesh State, which didn’t go well with the people of the region, and it resulted in several agitations demanding a separate state for Telangana, with Hyderabad as its capital. The city was a hot bed for all the movements, with the latest one being in 2009, and the movement was successful with carving out separate Telangana state and Hyderabad is the capital of the new state.
