A fort on Ramagiri hillocks is located near Begumpet village in Kamanpur mandal near the PWD road leading to Manthani. This famous fort built in stone with several bastions is spread over a very large area of several kilometers. The Ramagiri hill with its vast area is known for its beautiful natural surroundings with rare species of plants and several kinds of medicinal roots. The fort played an important role from the early times to the period of AsafJahis.
The fort was under the control of Gundaraja of Manthani and Edaraja of Ramagundam. They were defeated by the Kakati Prola II and the entire area of Polavasa, Manthani and Ramagundam were under the control of Kakatiyas. After the fall of Kakatiyas, Musunuri Kapayanayaka occupied Orugallu and appointed Muppabhupala as the ruler of Sabbinadu with his capital at Ramagiri during 14th Century A.D. The Bahamani Sultan Ahmed Shah I (1422-1436 A.D.) invaded Telangana region in 1433 A.D. and occupied the Ramagiri fort.
