Sangareddy is the district Headquarters of Medak district earlier known as Medukku Durgam, and Medukku Seema, which means cooked rice. As per the PWD records, this jail was constructed in the year 1796 AD, during the Prime Ministership of Salar Jung I. This is the oldest District Jail in the history of the area. This prison is spread across an area of 3 acres and 10 guntas out of which jail building occupies 1 acre and 12 guntas. During the year 1947- 48 the Darogha acted as head of the jail. At present, this Heritage jail building consists of two wings ie., male and female wings, with nine barracks in male wing and one barrack in female wing.
