At a distance of 95 Kms from Warangal & 260 Kms from Hyderabad, Medaram is famous for Samakka Sarakka Jatara held once in every two years during the month of February. It is located within Ethurnagaram Wildlife Sanctury.

Sammakka is mother of Sarakka; both belong to the tribal community in Medaram village. In 14th century, Sammakka & Sarakka fought against Kakatiyas ruler Prathaparudra who tried to occupy the tribal territories. Finally, they lost their lives along with all their family members during the brutal fight.

This fair is said to be the largest repeating aggregation of tribal communities in the whole world.
