MANGALAGIRI

The history of this famous shrine is recorded in the Brahma Vaivarta Purana, which is one of our ancient Puranas. Mangalagiri hill means an auspicious hill, and it is a part of the Eastern Ghats. This place is one of the eight important Mahakshetras of India, which was meant by the Lord to be taken as His own abode, for the redemption of humanity from sin. The origin of this temple with its presiding deity known as Panakala Nrusimhaswamy is traced to the Krithayuga. The temple is situated midway on the side of a hill.

The mountain itself is in the shape of an elephant as seen from a distance. Even to day the hill presents the appearance of a reclining elephant.
