Jangaon






Jangaon is a town, revenue divisional headquarters and a Municipality in Warangal district in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh.

The name Jangaon coming from "Jain Gaon" which means Village of Jains, a religion of India. Kolanpak (kulpak) in the Nalgonda district which is about 20km from Jangaon is a famous pilgrimage center for Jain people and it has much historical background.

When the Jain religion dominated in India, most of the tourists from different places of India visited Kulpak. At that time most of the Jains settled in Jangaon, which was called Jaingaon at that time. Later people started calling it "Jangaon". Kulpak's history starts in 1st century A.D. and there are findings of archaeological sculptures.

Jangaon played a vital role in the Freedom struggle from the autocratic Hyderabad Nizam's rule. Bairanpalli, a village near Jangaon, is well known as a second Jallianwala Bagh as about 150 martyrs were killed in the Telangana Liberation fight in the hands of Nizam's army also known as the Razakars.
