Ancient Kalinga Kingdom, with over 2000 years of Rich Heritage, flourished between the great rivers of Godavari in present Andhra Pradesh State in the west and Mahaa Nadi in present Odisha state in the East. Srikakulam District was part of this Kingdom and places like Dantapuri , Singupuram and Sri Mukhalingam served as Capital cities for the kalinga Kingdom for many centuries. 


Srikakulam may be called an Embodiment of all Riches. During early centuries, it was called as Rudra Koteswara Agraharam, since Lord Balaraama installed Uma Rudra Koteswara Swamy (Lord Shiva) here on the banks of river Naagaavali. It was also referred to as Pancha Linga Kshetram. During Moghul rule in 14th - 16th centuries, the town was referred to as Gulshanabad. Srikakulam  was called as Chikakole by the British , for ease of Pronunciation. 


With gushing Waters of  Naagaavali, Vamsadhaara, Mahendra Tanaya Rivers rushing through the lush green hill tops to reach the Bay Of Bengal, the District offers a unique blend of Ancestry, Tranquility and Tradition with Modernity.......................
Be it Spiritual......Cultural......ECO.......Archaeological......Heritage.....Demographic... etc... etc...., Srikakulam District offers the Connoisseurs and God Seekers a memorable experience ........Virtually  A  Lyric  Written  On  Stone.

Tourism development is a High Priority Area for the Government of Andhra Pradesh. The Chief Minister himself is heading the Ministry of Tourism.
