DHARMAPURI

Dharmapuri is not only one of the oldest villages of Andhra Pradesh but also comparatively a big one considering its inaccessibility. It has about 2,000 houses, which are built in the old fashion. The village is a famous and renowned one, as a centre for Vedic studies, and for several centuries in the past Sanskrit pundits have emerged from this village. The tradition and environment of the place prove that it was a great seat of learning of Vedic and Sanskrit studies in the past.

The most important temple in Dharmapuri is the temple dedicated to Lord Vishnu as Narasimhaswamy. This holy place with its presiding deity is mentioned in the Brahmanda Purana. There is an un-published palm leaf manuscript in Sanskrit with the title "Dharmapuri Kshetra Mahatmyam" describing the Puranic story and the greatness of this Lord in great detail.
