AHOBALAM

The Lord revealed himself to this boy, Srinivasacharya, who, at the bidding of the Lord, came to Ahobalam where Sri Mukundaraya, the then Chieftain, received him.

The Lord himself in the shape of a Yogi initiated him and hence the jeer is known as Satagopa Yati. The jeers of the Math, which are spiritual heads, are a source of spiritual benefit to all people.

Tallapaka Annamacharya, the great Telugu musician, also received initiation from the jeers of Ahobalam.

The important festival of this place is the annual Brahmotsava, which takes place in the first fortnight of Phalguna Month, a fortnight after Sivarathri.

This festival which has a peculiar custom, shows clearly the love of the people towards their Lord.

The Padmasalis of the place claim the divine consort as a maiden of their own class,and so they claim the right toperform the Kalyanotsava to the Lord.
