Raj Bhavan (Andhra Pradesh) (translation: Government House) is the official residence of the Governor of Andhra Pradesh.[1] It is located in Vijayawada, Andhra Pradesh, India.


After the Telangana state formed in 2014, E. S. L. Narasimhan served as the joint governor for both Andhra Pradesh and Telangana until 2019. Later, Biswabhusan Harichandan is appointed as the 23rd Governor of Andhra Pradesh. Then, a separate Raj Bhavan was needed for the residence of the governor. Government of Andhra Pradesh, headed by N. Chandrababu Naidu converted the government irrigation house into the Raj Bhavan in 2019.[2]
