Addaṅki refers to the captial town (of the Andhra country) of the Reḍḍi rulers according to the verses of the Annavarappāḍu plates of Kāṭaya Vema Reḍḍi. Accordingly, “There flows the beautiful river Kuṇḍī, on the bank of which is the city called Addaṃki, which resembles the Heaven (Amarāvatī) by (the beauty of) its horses, the donors and the women, who resemble the celestial nymphs. During the age of Kali, there came out the righteous fourth caste, from the feet of Viṣṇu like the flow of the Gaṅga and the one who became the ruler of that city is going to be described with all his descendants here”.
