 city, northern Andhra Pradesh state, southern India. It lies along the Chennai-Kazipet-Delhi railway. Warangal was the ancient capital of the Kakatiyas, an Andhra dynasty that flourished in the 12th century CE. Warangal's fort, lying southeast of the present-day city, was once surrounded by two walls; traces of the outer wall remain, as do the four stone gateways (sanchars) of the inner wall. The Khush Mahal, an audience hall dating to the 14th century, is near the fort, and a thousand-pillared temple, built in 1162, is located within the city itself. Warangal is now a commercial and industrial centre, its main products being carpets, blankets, and silks. The city has colleges of medicine, engineering, and arts and sciences. Pop. (2001) 530,636.
