Angalakuduru is a village in Tenali mandal, located in Guntur District of the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. The village is about 5 km from Tenali and is about 20 km from the district headquarters in Guntur City.

Etymology[edit]

According to one legend, the original name of this village used to be "Anganala Koduru". 'Anganala' means Women's and Koduru is a colloquial synonym for 'village' or 'a hamlet'. The full meaning is "Women's village". In ancient times women used to be more in number than men in this village, thus the name. Over a period of time the name was transformed into "Angalakuduru". But this story is only hearsay, no historical or documentary evidence is available.

Climate[edit]

Climate here is like at any other tropical place. The climate is mostly sultry. The maximum temperature could reach up to 45 C in peak summer (April and May) and minimum temperature rarely goes down below 14 C in Winter (December and January). The Relative Humidity is always well above 75% and can reach up to 95% during Summer, due its proximity to the coastline. The best time to visit the village is, of course, Winter (Nov–Feb) during which the climate would be very pleasant.
