Srikakulam is a town in Srikakulam District in the north-eastern corner of the state of Andhra Pradesh, India. The town of Srikakulam is the district headquarters and has a population of 109,666 (agglomeration 117,066) (2006 census). It is located on the banks of the River Nagavali at (lat: 18o18' N, lon: 83o54' E).

By virtue of being in Andhra Pradesh, the primary language is Telugu. However, since it shares a border with the East Indian state of Orissa, a significant number of people can understand and even communicate in Oriya. Like most of the coastal districts in Andhra Pradesh, Srikakulam is an agrarian community. Recent developments including industrial investment and the establishment of degree granting colleges has made it similar to several small Indian towns - developing very fast but hampered by a lack of infrastructure.
