Vanasthalipuram is a residential neighborhood in Hyderabad, Telangana, India. It comes under Hayath Nagar Mandal located in L.B. Nagar zone along the highway towards Vijayawada and Nagarjuna Sagar. During the rule of the Nizam of Hyderabad, the area was a dense forest with wild animals and famous as a hunting ground, hence the name Vanasthalipuram (Vana="forest"+sthali="place"+puram-a locality or site). Vanasthalipuram derived its name from Harini Vanasthali, a deer park located beside national highway. It was originally known as Shikharghar. Now, Vanasthalipuram is famously known as retirees paradise. With booming IT in Hyderabad and TCS opening it’s south operations in Adibatla (close to Vanasthalipuram), the place is seeing an unprecedented real estate boom.
