Old Town

The old town was wholly encompassed by a fort wall. A huge mosque is located at the centre of the fort. The mosque was built by Mullah Kasam Ali Kamar Ali, a businessman who came to Malkapur to start a new business in 1905. Just next to the mosque he built a community hall which is being used for all community functions. Just in front of the mosque there is a government subsidized Urdu primary school City School. City school was established in 1888 during British rule.

Gazeetteers History

One of the old gates of the rampart of dressed stones had an inscription to the effect that it was erected in 1729 during the reign of Muhammad Malikkhan. Malkapur is mentioned in Ain-i-Akbari as the headquarters of a paragana in the sarkar of Narnala. The town is said to have been founded about five centuries back by a prince of the Faruqi house of Khandesh and is said to have been named by him after the princess, Malika, his daughter. But the story is improbable as no record of any journey in this direction by Miran Ghani Adil Khan, the Faruqi prince of the period has yet been traced. In 1761 the town was rich enough to pay Rs. 60,000 to the army of Raghunath Rav for exemption from plunder. The Nizams used to keep a force of about 20,000 men in this frontier district of their dominions. Daulatrav Shinde and Raghuji Bhosle were encamped near Malkapur when the British envoy Colonel Collins, after presenting General Wellesley's ultimatum, quit Shinde's camp in 1803.

Malkapur was the scene of several petty battles between zamin-dars, rural talukdars, Rajputs and Muslims during the period between the beginning of the nineteenth century and the Assignment of Berar to the East India Company in 1853. The following extract taken from the Old Buldhana District Gazetteer published in 1910 gives an interesting account of one of these fights which took place in 1837.

'In 1837 a Musalman shot dead a Rajput of Dattala who had insulted him at the Pimpalgaon fair. The act generated a blood feud, and twelve years later Lal Singh of Dattala, without warning or fresh provocation, assembled a band of nearly three thousand Hindus to avenge his relation's death. The fanatical Sikhs of Nanded on the Godavari sent a contingent of five hundred men and the first news of the impending attack came to the Musalmans of Malkapur from their friends at Patur, who sent hasty word that this formidable company was marching hy. The Rajputs and Sikhs assaulted Malkapur. There was the usual street lighting, burning, sacking, and slaying, though not many lives were lost, and the Muhammedans were worsted. This was, however, only the first game of the rubber, for the Musahnans were flocking to the fray from neighbouring towns; from Burhanpur especially a strong body had set out. The police and the local militia under the talukdar were utterly powerless, but detachments of the Nizam's army [ The Hyderabad contingent.] under Major Arthur Wyndham, then arrived, and found Malkapur empty and deserted. The Musal-mans had been driven out and the Rajputs had retreated to Dattala, where they afterwards had a skirmish with the troops. ' [2]
