AHOBALAM

The other version is that because of the great cave, the Ahobila, where Garuda worshipped and realised the Lord, the place itself is come to be called Ahobila.

There are a number of popular legends about the Lord, which are prevalent among the Chenchus who are a peculiar tribal people that live in these hills.

The Chenchus are associated with Srisai- lam as well as Ahobalam. The popular legend is that when Lord Narayana took on Narasimhavatara, the Goddess Lakshmi was born in the Chenchu tribe, and both were living here happily.

On account of this, the Lord is said to have refused to go back to Vaikuntam also.

This love of Lord Narasimha with Goddess Lakshmi as Chencheta, a Chenchu bride, is famous in many folk songs of the place.
