Andhra Pradesh is one of the southern states of India that constituted on October 1, 1956; however, its territory is re-organized on June 2, 2014 and a new state carved out namely Telangana. With 972 km, the state has second longest coastline because of the Bay of Bengal located eastern side. Andhra Pradesh shares its state boundary with Odisha in the north east, Chhattisgarh in the north, Telangana in the northwest, Karnataka in the west, Tamil Nadu in the south and Yanam, an exclave (enclave of Puducherry) lies in the northeast of the state.

After re-organization, the state has two regions namely Coastal Andhra and Rayalaseema (collectively recognized as Seemandhra). Out of 13 districts, 9 districts are in Coastal Andhra and 4 are in Rayalaseema. Hyderabad is the joint capital of both the states Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. But Visakhapatnam is the largest city and commercial center of the state.  Other important cities are Vijayawada, Tirupati, Kurnool, Guntur, Rajahmundry, and Kakinada.

Andhra Pradesh has varying physio-graphic features ranging from mountains (Eastern Ghats), plateau (Deccan Plateau), rivers (important of them are Krishna and Godavari), and plains (Coastal plains). Because of having diversity, climate of the state is also pretty modified by these geographic features; however, monsoon plays major role in deciding temperature and rainfall in the region.
