ALAMPUR - DHUNDI GANAPATHI AALAYAM

Famous for- the unique Navabrahma Aalayams and housing one of the Saktipeethas, Alampur, the veritable HariHara-Brahma Kshetra has etched an indelible name on the pages of history. It contains several temples for the highest gods of Hindu Pantheon, Eke Brahma, papanaseswara, Channakesava, Narasimha, Jogulamba etc. This shrine for Ganapathy though not imposing in construction, nor attained such eminence as that of the Navabrahma temple, it is regularly visited and soulfully adored by bhaktakoti, throughout the year. This shrine is a standing testimony of the popular craze for calling the kshetra as Dhakshana Kasi, since in Kasi too, the most adorable Ganapathi is reverentially called Dhundi Ganapathi, and it bears semblance to that hallowed icon. It is lying in the Brahmin street, just opposite the Aswartha Vriksha. Nithyanaimithika worship is offered with great éclat. During Vinayaka Chathurthi a great procession takes place on a grand scale, when thousands throng and participate lustily in all ritualistic puja programmes.

It is about 15 km off Kurnool of Andhra Pradesh on broad gauge line, accessible by bus.
