Kakinada

Kakinada is a city and the district headquarters of East Godavari district in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. It is one of the fourteen municipal corporations in the state and is the headquarters of Kakinada mandal in Kakinada revenue division. The city is often termed as Pensioner's paradise.The city was selected as one of the hundred Indian cities to be developed as a smart city under PM Narendra Modi's flagship, Smart Cities Mission.EtymologyKakinandivada, a village near the present Kakinada was a Dutch settlement. They also used to store and export Coconut products and, hence, the name Co–canada. The British East India Company also called it with the same name when they established the first Canadian Baptist Mission. After Independence, it finally got the name Kakinada. Some theories suggest Kakasura's losing his eye by an arrow of Lord Rama gave the name Kakinada or that Kakinandi vada is derived from Kaka, an Ikshvaku king, who built the town. Another theory says that it is Kakulavada, an abode of crows – for catching fish on the shore.
