The port city of Kakinada is a cultural treasure trove. Whether you’re looking to watch the sunset from a port or enjoy a nice walk on the beach, Kakinada has something for everyone. Though our country has progressed and changed over the last decade, the city has maintained its cultural integrity and stood tall through the sands of time.
Kakinada has deep historical significance with roots dating back to Colonial India. Few records claim that the original name of the place was Kakanndivada. The Dutch settlers stored and exported coconuts from here and christened it as Co-canada. Soon after, British East India Company established the first Canadian Baptist Mission. The port city’s name was changed and proudly coined Kakinada post India’s independence.
The geography of the place is equally vibrant. Nestling on the delta of river Godavari at Kakinada bay, the Coringa Wildlife Sanctuary is the second largest Mangrove stretch in India. The silvery white sand adds a natural glow to the beaches, making it ideal for sunbathing. The refreshing cool sea breeze entices travelers to plan another visit soon. The city is also blessed with diverse places of worship, including famous temples, mosques and churches. Such architectural marvels are often considered as souvenirs of rich cultural legacy and highlight the architectural grandeurs of the colonial era.
