Munnuru Kapu:
Munnuru Kapu’s are primarily concentrated in Telangana region of Andhra Pradesh. By Occupation they are Farmers. The name Munnuru seems to be of a recent origin, which means three hundred. They were a part of the Telaga community and were the Imperial guard of the Tanjavore Nayaks. The Nawabs of Hyderabad requested the Tanjavore nayaks to send a battalion of his best infantry and cavalry for this personal security. The Tanjavore Nayak dispatched three hundred Telaga men and their families. The descendants of these three hundred families are now called Munnuru Kapu.

The Munnuru Kapu’s have always been associated with one Kingdom or the other in the form of Interior palace Guards like Tanjavore nayaks, Devarakonda, and Nizam etc.
