Konaseema is an area in the Godavari River delta in Andhra Pradesh, India. It is surrounded by distributaries of the Godavari River and the Bay of Bengal. After crossing Rajahmundry, the Godavari splits into two branches which are called Vriddha Gautami (Gautami Godavari) and Vasishta Godavari. Again the Gautami branch splits into two branches namely Gautami and Nilarevu. Similarly the Vasishta splits into two branches named Vasishta and Vainateya. These four branches which join the Bay of Bengal at different places, are forming a delta of length 170 km (110 mi) along the coast of the Bay of Bengal and is called the Konaseema region.[1] Amalapuram and Ravulapalem are the major towns in Konaseema. This region is mostly known for its coconut and paddy fields.[citation needed]
