Amaravati Chosen as New Andhra Pradesh Capital

Amaravati Chosen as New Andhra Pradesh Capital

# Andhra Pradesh government has approved Amaravathi as name of the new capital city of the state coming up in the Vijayawada-Guntur region.

# The name Amaravathi was chosen in view of the historical and spiritual significance as it was ancient seat of Satavahana ruler’s kingdom.

# The historic town will be transformed according to the plan drafted by the Singapore government, with a few changes suggested by Naidu.

# The town, located between Vijayawada and Guntur, will officially be called as Andhra Pradesh's capital after 2024.

# Ever since Telangana was carved out of Andhra Pradesh, Hyderabad has served as the shared capital for the two states.

# Hyderabad will remain the capital for both the states and will remain so for another nine years, after which Amaravati will be made the capital of Andhra Pradesh.
