Visakhapatnam district is an administrative division of Andhra Pradesh, India, with administrative headquarters at Visakhapatnam.
Visakhapatnam history goes back to the 6th century BCE. Its name can be found in Hindu and Buddhist texts that date back to ancient times. Vizag, as Visakhapatnam is often referred to, has been mentioned by Panini and Katyayana in their writings of the fourth century BC. The city was also a part of the Kalinga kingdom, which was later conquered by the emperor Ashoka. Visakha District is a large Buddhist remnants hub with many sites documented and undocumented from north to south border of the district along the coast line.
In 1979, part of the district was split to help form Vizianagaram district.
