AHOBALAM

The scene of action was laid in the then flourishing city of Hiranyakasipu's capital, now lying amidst the thick sumptuous growth of forests in the Nallamalai Hills of the Kurnool district of Andhra Pradesh. This holy antique kshetra has many more attractions that make the listners spell-bound, and viewers gape and gaze for ever; for, it is here the images of Navanarasimhas are worshipped in imposing temples; it is here found the same pillar from which emerged Narasimhaswamy for dustasamhara; it is here lies the same tank filled with the blood of Hiranyakasipu, now going by the name of Rakta Kundam; it is in this holy place Lord Narasimha gave a certain Srinivasacharya Sanyasa to make him the  1st pontiff of Visistadwathapita that has been propagating the most easiest tenets -prapathi and bhakthi; it is this holy kshetra called Panchakrosa Tirtha; it is this holy place visited by the world renowned Vaggeyakara Annamacharya and composed marvelous lyrics in praise of Lord Narasimha.....
