ALAMPUR - SURYANARAYANA AALAYAM

This famous lone Brahma kshetra renowned as Dakshana Kasi has many uniques to the jealousy of several ancient pilgrim centres of our Punya Bharat. Lying on the western bank of Tungabhadra, deemed the Uttaravahini and having bathing ghats numbering 64 with 18 thirthas, this famous yatrasthala was recorded as Hemalapura in the sthalapurana, and Hatampura in the inscriptions. On account of its location between Vedavathi and Nadavathi rivers, it is akin to Varanasi situated between Varuna, and Asi rivers. In addition, it was famous as Bhaskara kshetra and Parasurama kshetra too and there are legends in proof of its name and glory thereof.

This sacred Brahma kshetra enshrining Navarbrahmas has many more well-built temples dedicated to the divinities of highest in rank, and holiest in fame, such as Papanatha temple, Jogulamba temple, Narasimha temple, Channakesava temple, Nilakanta temple and Suryanarayana temple to mention only a few. But many of them are in dilapidated condition except a few receiving regular agamic worship. Among them the Suryanarayanaswamy temple comes first. As they were patronised by the enlightened rulers of Rastrakutas, Kalyani Chalukyas and finally Vijayanagara kings, their dimensions, designs and sculptural beautifications, needless to say are vast, imposing and soul-lifting.
