Andhra Pradesh is located on the eastern shore of India. It is bounded to the north-west by Telangana, to the north by Chhattisgarh, to the north-east by Odisha, to the south by Tamil Nadu, to the west by Karnataka, and the east by the Bay of Bengal. Andhra Pradesh is India's 7th largest state by area and tenth-largest by population. After Gujarat, it features India's second-longest coastline (974 km).

Hyderabad has served as the combined capital of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana since the state's partition in 2014. Hyderabad is well-known for its rich historical legacy. Anantapur, Chittoor, Guntur, Nellore, Kurnool, and Visakhapatnam are some of the state's well-known districts (which is currently serving as the administrative capital of Andhra Pradesh). However, Amaravati and Kurnool function as the state's legislative and judicial capitals. In a few years, Amravati will be the de facto capital of Andhra Pradesh.

Historical Background

Andhra Pradesh's history dates back to the Vedic times. The ancient literature Aitareya Brahmana mentions it by name. There is evidence that the coastal kingdom of Andhra Pradesh prospered under Satavahana's control. Between the Godavari and Krishna rivers, inland and maritime trade thrived. During the period, the money was utilised to enable barter. There is additional evidence that Buddhism flourished here during the reign of the Ikshvakus of Nagarjunakonda. Despite the monarchs' devotion to Vedic ritualism, Buddhism flourished, as evidenced by the numerous Stupas, Chaityas, and Viharas found here.

The Andhra area was ruled by numerous kingdoms, including the Kakatiya Dynasty, the Reddy Clan, the Vijayanagar Empire, Mughal domination, and, finally, the British Empire in 1792. In 1948, the princely state of Hyderabad became a part of India upon independence. Andhra Pradesh was the very first state to be constituted based on language under the State Reorganisation Act in 1956.

Following that, the Telangana Movement began, and Andhra Pradesh was divided in 2014, giving birth to Telangana as a new state.
