Rajahmundry Name to be Changed by Government?


Government of Andhra Pradesh feels this is the right time to bring back the ancient glory of Rajahmundry on the occasion of Godavari pushkaralu as it is making plans to change the name Rajahmundry to Rajamahendri or Rajamahendravaram.




Britishers modified names of several places for their convenience to easily pronounce them and Rajahmundry was also a name that emerged in the process, Government said. As Madras was changed to Chennai,Bombay to Mumbai, Puna to Pune, Andhra Pradesh government is taking steps to change Rajahmundry to Rajamahendri or Rajamahendravaram, say sources.
