Located on the banks of River Godavari in Andhra Pradesh, and officially known Rajamahendravaram, Rajahmundry is the biggest city of the East and the West Godavari District in the state. Founded in the 19th century by the Chalukya King- Raja Raja Narendra, it is also known as the ‘Cultural Capital of Andhra Pradesh’ owing to its rich History, Culture, Agriculture, Economy, Tourism, Floriculture, Industrial Potential, and its vibrant heritage.

Rajahmundry is primarily known to be a pilgrimage spot for Hindus, owing to the presence of several temples, shrines and places of worship. Besides, the River Godavari is considered a sacred river other than being a significant spot of tourism. The river also has several Pushkara ghats, where the grand Pushkara festivals are held every 12 years. The festival is a holy congregation which sees a lot of devotees scurrying here for the prayers and to take a dip in the holy water.

- Summers are extremely hot here so make sure you check the weather before you plan a trip.
- The food is generally spicy, be careful before requesting for extra spicy food. It would be best to ask them to serve moderate to medium spicy food..
