Wanaparthy Palace of Wanaparthy District of Telangana State: Wanaparthy Palace is in the Telangana district of Wanaparthy. It is 1 km from Wanaparthy Bus Station, 58 km from Mahabubnagar, and 153 km from Hyderabad.

The Wanarpathy Palace is a well-known building in the town of Wanaparthy. It was built in the 1800s by the Wanarpathy Rajas. Under the Hyderabad Nizams, Wanarpathy was one of the most important royal states. The palace, named after a Muslim saint, is called Mustafa Mahal. This Palace mixes British, Mughal, and South Indian buildings.

When the British Empire controlled India, this area was run by the Nizams of Hyderabad with the help of feudal lords who ruled the area and collected taxes from farmers. Raja Rameshwar Rao II was a feudal lord who was in charge of Wanaparthy. Wanaparthy was one of the 14 major Zamindari segments in the Indian state of Telangana after India became independent.

Raja Rameshwar Rao II, the Raja of Wanaparthy, died on November 22, 1922. His son, Krishna Dev, was too young to take over the throne, so the Court took care of his land as his ward. Krishna Dev died before he turned 18, so his other son, Rameshwar Rao III, took over as King. After India got rid of the Zamindari system, the Raja of Wanaparthy lost some of his fame.

The King gave the Palace to an educational school, where Sri Krishanadevaraya Polytechnic College is now. The first Prime Minister of India, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, opened this college. It is the first Polytechnic College in Telangana.
