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
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.
