MANGALAGIRI is situated on the Bezwada-Guntur road and is about 8 miles
by road from Vijayawada. On the top of the Mangalagiri hill there is a famous temple
called the Panakala Nrusimhaswamy temple, which has been attracting pilgrims from a very
long time, and from all parts of the country. The nearest railway station is Mangalagiri
on the Guntur Vijayawada line but to visit the temple, the better course would be to get
down either at Vijayawada or at Guntur and take bus connections.
