The convenient navigational approach to sea through Krishna helped in flourishing number of urban settlements like Amaravati, Nagarjunakonda, Goli, Jaggayepetta, Chezarla, Ghantasala, Gummadidurru, Bhattiprolu. The river also encouraged the rulers and traders of this region to influence the polity, economy and culture through maritime relations in Far East Asian region.
