It is located 40 km north of Hyderabad. The history of this town dates back to the Kakatiya reign. Although people of various religious backgrounds live in Narsapur town, they have embraced the Telangana culture. Narsapur Reserve Forest, the largest forest in the suburbs of Greater Hyderabad, is spread between Gummadidala and Narsapur towns. This dense patch of forest spans 30 to 40 km². It has a mini-ghat section, thick forest with a variety of trees, shrubs, herbs (including medicinal plants), and grasses, several small lakes. The forest and irrigation tanks of this mandal support a range of wildlife (fauna include rhesus macaque, spotted deer, four-horned antelope, jackal, wild boar, leopard, rat snake, Russell's viper, peacock, and many other species of small mammals, reptiles, amphibians, birds, fish, crustaceans, insects, spiders, ...). In the past, the Municipal Corporation of Hyderabad used this forest as the release site for monkeys captured in the city, and the approach road to Narsapur from Hyderabad is now often lined with troops of Rhesus Macaques begging for food from passing motorists. This forest is one of the regular venues for monthly Sunday field trips of the Birdwatchers Society of Andhra Pradesh (BSAP), which has records of bird observations from here dating back >30 years.
