AHOBALAM

As soon as the foot of the hills is reached there is the temple of Prahladavarada Narasimha, i.e. the aspect of Lord Nara- simha as blessing Prahlada.

This temple lies in the Centre of three prakara, which are built in the Vijayanagar style.

About a furlong from this temple is the Alwar Koneru, which supplies good drinking water.

About a mile and a half from the temple is the Chatravata Narasimha. Thorny bushes surround the deity here and the image is installed under a pippal tree.

From the foot of the hill one has to ascend up the hill, to reach what is called Upper Ahobalam.

The hill path is, about six miles, and is cut across virgin hills and forests, and served by several cascades of exquisite natural beauty.

Several shrines of Narasimha are installed here.There is a shrine of Karanda Nara- simha and another called Yogananda Narasimha.
