Atmakur is a town in the Kurnool district of Andhra Pradesh, India.[1]

Located on the Kurnool to Guntur Highway this town is also known as Sri Sailam Atmakur. With the Nallamala forests laying on its outskirts Atmakur acts as the center of a larger assembly constituency.

The etymology of the name comes from a religious pilgrimage often begun from it. According to local lore, before starting on to the holy town of Srisailam from Atmakur, one was expected to leave all bad things behind and start onward with a good soul, renewed by faith in the higher self (know as Ātman in the Telugu language). Thus, the town is known as Atmakur.

The current MLA in this region is Erasu Pratapa Reddy, and Atmakur comes under the Srisailam Assembly constituency. A sub post-office is currently in operation, and can be found at the pin code 518422.
