Nalgonda is a city and municipality in the Indian state of Telangana. It is the headquarters of the homonymous district, as well as the headquarters of the Nalgonda mandal in the Nalgonda revenue division.EtymologyThe city's name is derived from two Telugu words: nalla ("black") and konda ("hill").
