Ash mounds recently discovered at a remote village in Telangana’s Medak district could well be remains of lava ash from the Toba supervolcano eruption that occurred about 75,000 years ago in Indonesia, say history enthusiasts and field explorers with the Kotha Telangana Charitha Brundam (KTCB).

The white powder mounds were discovered by the group’s field researcher B V Bhadragirish near Haridra stream, a tributary of the Manjeera river, at Hastalapur village in Narsapur. The local residents were using this powder for chalk.

After learning about the ash pits on the outskirts of the village, Bhadragirish inspected the ash mounds which are locally called sudda gutta. The ash bed, located about one kilometre away to the southeast of Narasimhaswamigutta on the village outskirts, is spread over a radius of about half a kilometre and two feet in depth. He had gone to visit the prehistoric rock art paintings site on Pandavulagutta. It was believed that the ash came from iron-smelting furnaces.

Lendi River originates in Udgir taluka and flowing through the Ahmadpur taluka joins the Manjira River at Shelgaon in Nanded district, Maharashtra.
Near humnapur village, kotgiri mandal in Nizamabad district Telangana.

Malar River joins Manjira at Daulatpur village in Maharashtra.
Near Mandharna village, Bodhan Mandal, Nizamabad district, Telangana.

Nizam Sagar was constructed across the Manjira River between Achampeta and Banjapalle villages of the Nizamabad district in Telangana, India. The most outstanding feature of the project is the gigantic masonry dam sprawling across the river for 3 kilometers with a motorable road of 14 feet width.

The Singur Reservoir on Manjira River in Medak District is the main drinking water source for the Medak and Nizamabad districts as well as the adjoining twin cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad.
Moyatummeda, a tributary to Manner, Peddavagu and Chinnavagu are the other rivulets, which sustained ancient cultures in this region. 

The River is used for water transport between Sironcha(MH) and Kaleswaram(TS). It is also a part of the 12 rivers in the Pushkaram list which is a festival in Hindu traditions.
