Nelakondapalli
 

Nelakondapally (Telugu: నేలకొండపల్లి) is a town and headquarters of a mandal in Khammam district, Andhra Pradesh, India, located 21 km from Khammam.

Nelakondapalli is located at a major road junction on the routes from Khammam to Kodad and Kusumanchi. Transportation by bus and car is available to take travellers from Nelakondapalli to nearby villages such as Bodulabanda,Anantanagar, Aregudem and Kattukachavaram.

Nelakondapalli is a historic site encompassed by a mud fortification wall covering nearly 100 acres (0.40 km2). Excavations have unearthed foundations of brick built Viharas, wells, cisterns, a Mahastupa, terracotta figurines, a bronze idol of Buddha, a miniature Stupa carved in limestone, and other materials from the third and fourth centuries. Archaeological sites known as Virataraju Dibba and Keechaka Gundam claiming importance from the days of the Mahabharata are located one mile (1.6 km) from Nelakondapalli. Relics unearthed at these places strengthen the belief that this place was noted as far back as the days of Mahabharata.

Nelakondapally is a town and headquarters of a mandal in Khammam district, Telangana, India, located twenty-one kilometres from Khammam.

Nelakondapalli is located at a major road junction on the routes from Khammam to Kodad and Kusumanchi. Transportation by bus and car facilitates travel from Nelakondapalli to several villages in close proximity, such as Bodulabanda, Mandrajupally, Anantanagar, Aregudem and Kattukachavaram.

Nelakondapalli is a historic site encompassed by a mud fortification wall covering nearly one-hundred acres (approximately 0.40 km square kilometres). Excavations there have unearthed several foundations of brick-built viharas, wells, cisterns, a mahastupa, terracotta figurines, a bronze idol of Buddha, a miniature stupa carved in limestone and other materials from the 3rd and 4th centuries.

Also of historical and, particularly, cultural significance are two archaeological sites located approximately one mile (1.6 km) from Nelakondapalli. According to local Hindu folk tradition, the sites referred to as Virataraju Dibba and Keechaka Gundam were contemporaneous to certain events described in the Hindu epic Mahabharata. The discovery of archeological relics at the sites seems to corroborate the local Hindu folk account.
