III.
Rajah Vengal Ranga-Rao Bahadur Garu.

Rajah Vengal Ranga-Rao was a child when his adoptive father died. So the estate was managed first by his own father Madhava Rao, then by his eldest brother Padma Rao, and then by his elder brother Narappa Rao, from whom Rajah Vengal Ranga-Rao took charge of the estate on attaining his majority. He managed the estate remarkably well, formed some Agraharams for Brahmins, and also dug tanks, which still bear either his name, that of his adoptive father, or that of Madhava Rao. Padma Rao and Narappa Rao, during their management, dug each some tanks bearing their respective names.
