Chilakaluripet is a city in Guntur district of the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. It is a municipality and the mandal headquarters of Chilakaluripet mandal in Narasaraopet revenue division.[2]


Chilakaluripet was known as "chilakala thota, Rajagari Kota and Purushothama patnam" in the 18th and 19th centuries. A village on the outskirts of Chilakaluripet has a great history. The British used to call this town as "Chick pet". Due to the number of orchards in and around the town, parrots used to flock here and live on the trees. Hence, this place was called "Chilakaluru" during the time of Chilakaluripet zameendars.
