AHOBALAM

Ascending further one sees two sikharas - crests called Vedadri and Garudadri. It is here lies Bhavanasani Thirtham which flowing down into two rivulets ,joins Kumudwati and Pennar. On the Southern side lies the temple for Ugra Narasimha. It is a beautiful temple and the image installed, true to the name reveals the fierce aspect. Adjacent to this is the Guha Narasimha Shrine. And here stands at the entrance a great pillar that received blow from Hiranyakasipu and from which emerged Lord to protect Dharma and suppress adharma. Near to it lies Karoda Narasimha shrine, where the Lord reveals himself in his boar form. This form is auspicious, and if one makes Narayana Sataksari japa followed by Varahakanda Parayana for three days, he attains immense spiritual power and his desires would be fulfilled. After walking a distance of two miles one reaches the aalayam of Malola Narasimha Swamy. The image is quite pleasant and reveals in Santarupa. The Lord it appears, after killing the demon spent sometime here in the pleasant company of Lakshmi his consort.
