Santhipuram is a small town and a Mandal HQ in Chittoor district in the state of Andhra Pradesh in India. Once a sleepy village with hardly 6 houses and an elementary school, which looked like all covered by two gigantic banyan trees, has transformed in the last 20 years into a thriving little town. The local economy is supported by the traditional agriculture base as well as vibrant businesses. The river Palar is crucial for the agricultural sustainability in this area. Karnataka and Tamil Nadu state borders are within 10 KM and 25KM distance respectively. After Kuppam the Kolar Gold Fields is the next nearest big town. It is approximately 100 KM from the district HQ Chittoor and 2.5 hours away from Bangalore.
