Kadapa (formerly known as Cuddapah) is a city in the Rayalseema region of the south-central part of Andhra Pradesh, India and also called as “Heart of Rayalaseema”. It is the district headquarters of Kadapa district. The city’s name originated from the Telugu word “gadapa” meaning threshold or gate. It acquired this name with its relation to the Tirumala Hills; one had to pass through Cuddapah in olden days to reach Tirumala Hills.Source: Knowledge Traditions & Practices of India: Education: Systems & Practices (history)
Cuddapah or Kadapa.—In the 1820s, the Collector of Cuddapah (Kadapa in Andhra Pradesh) noted how villagers supported students who came to study under teachers in the vicinity. There were many institutions of higher learning in most districts of Bengal and southern India: the district of Coimbatore alone had over 700 indigenous schools. Significantly, in many districts of south India 78% to 80% of the students in such village schools were from the disadvantaged sections of society.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.
