Amaravati is the proposed riverfront capital city of the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. It is located on the southern banks of the River Krishna in Guntur and Krishna districts. The new city will cover an area of 217.23 sq. km., within the Andhra Pradesh Capital Region. The foundation stone of the planned city was laid at Uddandarayunipalem village of Guntur district by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on 22 October 2015.The cities of Guntur and Vijayawada are the major suburbs of the city.

The new capital is named after the historic site of Amaravathi, known as a center of Buddhist culture that flourished from 400 BC to 1100 AD.

As per the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act (2014), Hyderabad became the capital of the newly formed state Telangana, following the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh. Amaravati is thus being built to serve as the capital of Andhra Pradesh now that Hyderabad will no longer be located in the state. However, Hyderabad would remain the joint capital of both states for a period of time not exceeding ten years until the development of the new capital is complete.

The foundation for the city was laid at Uddandarayunipalem on 22 October 2015. The Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, N. Chandrababu Naidu, Chief Minister of Telangana, Kalvakuntla Chandrashekar Rao, the Japanese minister for economy trade and industry, Yosuke Takagi, and the Singaporean Minister for Trade and Industry, S.
