Armoor or Armur is a town located in Nizamabad District in Telangana State. Armoor is situated on NH-44 (Hyderabad-Nagpur section) and NH-16 (Nizamabad-Jagdalpur section).

Armoor is a natural stopover for the traffic on the highway. This site boasts of hillock of boulders, resultant of natural weathering over 1.45 billion years. 


Navanatha Siddeswara Temple is sited on top of the hill. According to the folklores, Navanathas or Siddhas (revered sages) still reside in the natural caves of these hillocks. A gorge nearby is believed to have curative properties in its waters.

Hillocks with unusual rock formations known as Armoor Rock Formation, located on the NH-16, are the biggest draw here. The rock formations are a result of natural weathering of the rocks over millions of years. It seems as if nature is revealing its artistic expression with these unique rock formations.
