Osmanabad is a city and a municipal council in Osmanabad district in the Indian state of Maharashtra.HistoryThe city Osmanabad actually derives its name from Nizam Osman Ali, the last ruler of Hyderabad, of which the region was a part till 1947 and Osmanabad's history dates way back to the era of the Ramayana where Lord Rama is said to have spent some of his exile in parts of Osmanabad. As per historical evidences, the district was ruled by the Mauryas, Satavahanas, Rashtrakutas, and Yadavas. In early centuries the city belonged to the Hindu Chalukyas and Devagiri Yadavas, but later became a part of the Bahmani and Bijapur kingdoms.For a period of time, it was also ruled by the Mughals, Bahmani, Nizam and Adil shahi kingdoms. Before the Hyderabad Nizam's rule, it was under control of the Mughal King Aurangzeb. Being under the Nizam rule, the district did not celebrate its freedom when the rest of India became independent in 1947. However, soon in 1948, Hyderabad State was merged with independent India and the district became a part of the then Mumbai District. It became a part of Maharashtra State when the State was formed in 1960. Osmanabad has a historic lineage dating back to the days of Marathwada and even before that to several kingdoms of which the region was a part. Osmanabad was earlier known as Dharashiv, possibly because of the Dharashiv Caves situated outside the city. Osmanabad is famous for its religious shrines for Hindus, Buddhist, Jains and other communities and places of historical importance as well.GeographyThe city of Osmanabad has an elevation of 653m. Osmanabad city is located in the west central part of Osmanabad Tahsil, but relatively central for the district as a whole. Tuljapur, Bhoom, Paranda, Washi, and Kalamb are the nearby towns.
