Ananthapuramu District with Mandals and Tourist Places


Ananthapuramu District with Mandals and Tourist Places
: Ananthapuramu was named after ‘Anaatasagaram,’ a large tank meaning “Endless Ocean.” Anantaras Chilkkavodeya built the villages of Anaantasagaram and Bukkarayasamudram. He was the minister of Bukka-I, who was a king of Vijayanagar. Others say that Anaantasagaram was named after Bukka’s queen, while others say that it must have been named after Anantarasa Chikkavodeya since Bukka didn’t have a queen with that name. In 1882, Anantapur District was made when it was split off from Bellary District.
 

The district was located between the eastern longitudes of 76º 47′ and 78º 26’E and the northern latitudes of 13º 41′ and 15º 14’N. To the north, the district is next to the Kurnool District.
