The Story of Pathapatnam

Pathapatnam is the most important constituency in Srikakulam district in Andhra Pradesh sharing most of its boundaries with Parlakhemundi in Odisha. It is located close to the Mahendratanaya River and is surrounded by lush green forests and hills. Pathapatnam is connected to the Naupada - Gunupur railway line.

The Neelmani Durga Ammavaru Gudi is very famous here. This deity is measured by the devotees as a powerful mother. According to the 2011 Indian Census, the zone has a population of 64639 with 16074 houses. The number of males in the village is 31896 and the number of females is 32743. The number of scheduled castes is 8133 while the number of scheduled tribes is 9376. Pathapatnam literacy rate is 55.97%, of which 64.61% are male and 47.55% are female. As there are no factories, migration is very high in this place. To reduce migration of locals, more water should be supplied so that more people can do agriculture and can become good farmers.

The History of Pathapatnam

Gajapati Palace, Jagannath Temple Complex, Ram Sagar and Sita Sagar are the major water reservoirs in the area. This parliamentary constituency has a special place in India history as this is the constituency from which the then President VVGiri was elected to the Lok Sabha. The divisional headquarters is at Palakonda, 60 km away.

The district headquarters is located at a distance of 90 km from Srikakulam. When Odisha was in Madras provenance control, Mahendratanaya waters are said to be half Andhra and half Odisha but later Odisha occupied fully. If the present government takes action to utilise the Mahendratanaya waters fully, then it can help the farmers in Pathapatnam to do irrigation. Mahendra waters stopped due to Dambapur Dam.
