BRIEF HISTORY OF PROMINENT FAMILIES


A Zamindar estate, today a town, a municipality and mandal headquarters in Visakhapatnam District in the State of Andhra Pradesh. Bimlipatnam is the oldest municipal town in India after Surat. Bheemili Beach is located at the origin of the Gosthani River, at a distance of 24 km from Visakhapatnam.

The founder of Bimlipatnam is a Muslim family. One branch of family came from Hyderabad state as a jagir was given to them in Bimlipatnam by the Nizam of Hyderabad and the other branch of family came from Nagapatnam as traders, and later became the biggest zamindars of Bimlipatnam.

The founders were the Jagirdars of Bimlipatnam and grew to a sizeable estate which is equivalent to a tiny princely state. The estate consisting of vast tracts of land consisting of several villages in the Bimlipatnam and the founding member was a class II magistrate who could fine up to Rs.500 in civil and criminal.
Mosque The graveyard for Muslims and the only mosque in Bimlipatnam was donated by Darbar Malik Khader Shah Saheb Bahadur.

The magistrate legacy was hereditary hence the heirs were all ruling prince of the zamindari estate. The famous Bollywood actress Zarina Wahab from "Chit Chor" fame married to a famous Bollywood actor Aditya Panscholi belong to the other branch of the family of House of Bhimili.
Sheikh Since there is no primogeniture in the House of Bhimili hence there were Begums and the younger sons who had become the ruling princes and princesses. The place is also named Bheemunipatnam (official), Bhimunipattanam, Bimlipatam and Bheemili.
