AHOBALAM

The popular legend is that afterdestruction of Hiranyakasipu, Lord Narasimha taught Prahlada his disciple, several yogic postures and the Lord in this aspect is called Yogananda. Narasimha.

At this sacred spot the Gobhila and Bharadwaja rishis are also said to have done tapascharya in order to rid them selves of the sins that they had committed.

The temple is a magnificent one, with a mantapa and gopura. Very near is the shrine of Guha Narasimha, at the entrance of which is a huge pillar.

The upper Ahobalam is a plateau 2,800' above sea level. The two crests of the hill are being called Vedadri and Garudadri, through which the sacred Bhavanasani Tirtham flows.

The Tirtham divides into two and joins Kumadavati and Pennar. The Tirtham is said to be an Antarvahini i.e., a river that flows inside during part of its course.

In a southern slope of the hill the Lord in his fierce aspect called Ugra Narasimha is worshipped.
