Located in Andhra Pradesh's coastal region, East Godavari is part of the coastal region. Kakinada is the district headquarters. Rajahmundry became part of the Madras Presidency in 1823. In 1925, the district reorganized into East Godavari and West Godavari, which was then administered by Rajahmundry, the district headquarters during British rule. The Godavari was divided into East and West Godavari after which Kakinada and Eluru became headquarters. With the merger of Andhra State and Telugu-speaking Hyderabad State in November 1956, Andhra Pradesh was formed.

Andhra Pradesh is the largest producer of paddy in the state. It consists of hills on either side of the river Godavari that runs till Bhadrachalam, Telangana, in the north-western part of this district. It is located in the coastal belt, so the climate remains humid for most of the year. Known for its lush greenery, this district is often referred to as Andhra's green belt.
