This area was ruled by different Hindu emperors of Kalinga (ancient Orissa) up to the medieval period. After the fall of the centralized Gajapati empire of Orissa, the region was governed by the Golkonda rulers. The ancestors of the Maharajas of Vizianagaram are thought to be descended from the Ranas of Udaipur, the Sisodia branch of the Guhilot tribe and Vasishta gotra. An important event in the history of the district which occurred by about this time is the war between the Rajas of Vizianagaram and Bobbili, popularly known as Bobbili Yuddam. The war was fought between the Rajah of Vizianagaram aided by the French General Bussy and the Rajah of Bobbili on the 24th January 1757. Rulers of this princely state belong to the Pusapati family. The village Pooshpadu in Nandigama Taluq was built by Amala Raju.
