Podili is a census town in Prakasam district of the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. It is the mandal headquarters of Podili mandal in Kandukur revenue division. The Kakatiyas were yet another dynasty to hold sway over the area comprised in Prakasam district. The first ruler who had anything to do with this district was Rudra (1150-1195 A.D.) The next phase in the conquest of this district appears to be in the time of Ganapathi Deva. He was the son of Mahadeva. So far as this district is concerned, Ganapathi Deva subdued the Velanadu Cholas, Telugu Cholas of Konidena and Chakranarayana princes. With the first, he acquired mastery over Podili and Darsi and seems to have entrusted it to the Kayastha chief Gangaya Sahini who was ruling from Panugal to Marajawadi. These series of conquests brought Podili, Darsi, Addanki, Markapur and Giddaluru taluks of this district under the sway of the Kakatiyas. The Saluvas ruled over the Podili area in the 15th century A.D., with their capital at Podili. A few inscriptions and the Kaifiyat of Podili form the sources of their history. The Saluvas were known as Sombuvarayas and are confused with the Saluvas of Guntur, who acquitted and distinguished themselves better than the Saluvas of Podili and became celebrated in Srinatha's works. The rule of the Saluvas of Podili ended with Telugu Rayudu. Afterwards nothing is heard of his successors or sons. The nearest railway station to Podili is Donakonda which is located in and around 28.7 kilometer distance. Podili is well connected by Andhra Pradesh State Road Transport Corporation buses from Hyderabad and the district headquarters Ongole.
