Amaravathi Chosen as new Capital of Andhra Pradesh

    Andhra Pradesh and Telangana share Hyderabad as a joint capital for 10 years.

The decision was taken by the Andhra Pradesh cabinet on Wednesday. The Hindu reported that Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu briefed the cabinet about the master plan for the capital, which has prepared by Singapore government agencies.

"The Japanese companies are ready to associate in construction, environment and other requirements of the city," he said. "It will be a deadly combination."

The construction of the new capital will begin in June.

The ancient town of Amaravati, situated twenty miles northwest of Guntur, was the capital of Satavahanas, the first great Andhra kings who ruled from the 2nd century BC to the 3rd century, after the downfall of Maurya empire, according to the government tourism website.

Amaravati, located on the banks of Krishna River, is home 2000-years-old Buddhist relics including the Aaravati Mahachaitya (The Great Stupa).

With its beginning in 3rd century BC, the Amaravati unfolds its chapters through the galaxy of sculptural wealth that once adorned the Mahachaitya, the majestic monument of the Buddhists situated here with its history extending over a period of a millennium, according to the Archeological Survey of India.
