West Godavari District is one of the districts of Andhra Pradesh, India; the district headquarters is the city of Eluru. "Yaantiki" is the official word of West Godavari. The district is in the delta region of the Krishna and Godavari rivers. Khammam District lies to the north, East Godavari District to the east, the Bay of Bengal to the south, and Krishna District to the west.
West Godavari District has a richly cultivated land, divided into the Delta and the uplands. In the Delta, coconut, lemon, rice farming and aquaculture are practiced. In the uplands, oil palm, tobacco, cotton, sugar cane, corn, cashew, mango, banana, and other fruit farming is practiced. Cotton barrage was built on River Godavari at Dhavaleswaram channeling two canals, from which one canal passes through West Godavari, making the soil fertile. In the coastal belt of the district, a large portion of prawns and fish is exported to Japan, and the United States.
Eluru (also called Helapuri) was a part of the Buddhist kingdom of Vengi.
