Nidadavole (Telugu: నిడదవోలు, also known as Nidadavolu) is a town , railway junction, assembly constituency and a municipality in West Godavari district in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. In Tretayuga it was called Niravadyapuram. A major canal from River Godavari passes through the town. The town is famous for a multitude of temples on the bank of the canal for which the bank is well known as "Chinna Kaasi Revu".

Temples with historical background like Golingeswaraalayam, Anjaneyaalayam, Someswaraalayam, Madanagopala Swamy Aalyam and the village deity (grama devata) Nangalamma Aalayam are spread in the centre of the town. There is a narration that Nangalamma wouldn't stay at her in-laws house which is located at Chinna Kaasi Revu and always goes back to her mother's place (Poori Gudi). Sri Kotasattemma Aalayam is also a very famous temple which is located in a village called Timmarajupalem, 2 KM away from the heart of the town. Besides this we can also find large number of Masjids, Churches/prayer halls and a Jain temple which testifies for unity in diversity.

It was an important town prior to 1970, was a hub of commercial activities, transport(both road and canal), rice mills, etc.,. It was a revenue division in the district. Its decline started after the construction of road cum rail bridge at Rajahmundry and Siddantham bridge at Ravulapalem due to its topographical position, It lost its glory and neighbouring towns like Tanuku, Tadepalligudem emerged as nerve centers in the district of West Godavari as NH5 ran through them.



It was a fort surrounded by water bodies (Jaladurgam) of Eastern Chalukyan kings. Chalukya Bhima, the builder of Draksharama Bhimeswara temple won this land from Rastrakutas, the then ruling dynasty. Veerabhadra Chalukya ,a ruler of this place married Rani Rudrama Devi, a prominent ruler and warrior princess of Kakatiya dynasty. It had 108 siva temples, many of them were totally destroyed by Md. Bin Tughlaq in 1323. Even today one can find the 6 feet destroyed sculptures of that age. A beautiful Nandi of 13th century placed in Sri Golingeswara temple discovered in School building construction. It has history erstwhile Rajahmundry's.

Nidadavole is an important railway junction in West Godavari district. A branch line goes to Tanuku from the main line between Vijayawada and Visakhapatnam. Recently it has been upgraded to computerised ticketing service and reservation facilities. Almost all express services between Vijayawada and Visakhapatnam stop here.

Haulage companies such as S.R.M.T.Ltd (Sri Ramadas Motor Transport Ltd) are the principal mode of public goods transport between towns in this area.

The Nidadavole overbridge of lengthe 700 mts was constructed between 1990 and 1992 it was never officially opened till date and is being used since 1992 without any lighting.

Before the road and train networks were in place, transport was dependent on water. The Nidadavole Wharf was quite famous then; over time the prominence of water transport has faded.
