The Coromandel Coast is the name given to the southeastern coast of the Indian peninsula.


The name is generally thought to be derived from the Tamil phrase Chola Mandalam, or the region (mandalam) of the Chola, an ancient dynasty of southern India. It could also be derived from Karai Mandalam or the coastal region.


The Coromandel Coast generally is referred to the stretch of coast between Point Calimere (Kodikkarai), near the delta of the Kaveri River, north to the mouths of the Krishna River. Presently the Coromandel Coast is shared by the states of Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and the union territory of Pondicherry.
