The city can be traced back to the rule of the Eastern Chalukya[13] king Raja Raja Narendra, who reigned around 1022 AD, after whom it is named – Rajamahendri or Rajamahendravaram.[14] Remains of 11th-century palaces and forts still exist.[15] However, new archaeological evidence suggests that the town may have existed long before the Chalukyas.
