History of Ameen Peer DargahEdit

The masjid is believed to be constructed in 1683. It was originally a grave place for the two Sufi saints Perullah Hussaini and Arufulla Hussaini II. The then Nawab of Sidhout Taluk, Nawab Nek nam Khan changed the name of this place to Neknamabaad on the advice of Perullah Hussaini. Neknamabaad eventually became Kadapa.
