AHOBALAM

It is this sacred region reverentially called Singavel Kunram by Alwars; it is here the redoubtable Vaishnava matapravakta Ramanuja Charya stayed and codified sacred books; it is to these temples royal dynasties like Vijayanagara, Kondaveeti, Chalukyas, Kakatiyas etc. made liberal donations; it is here the headquarters of Vaishnav Math Ahobala pitha is located and functioning; it is here Narasimha was wooed, and wedded to a Chenchu damsel called locally Chencheeta; it is here a certain courtesan realised the gravity of her sin with a single sight of the Lord and opened a pious chapter in life, and spent her wealth to construction purposes; it is here the Kakatiya King Prataparudra was taught by Lord Narasimha himself the oneness of Siva & Vishnu; it is this kshetra called the middle place of Adi Sesha, lying in the form of gigantic hills stretching from Kurnool to Chittoor; it is to this sacred place Vaishnava saint-singers, like Nammalwar, Perialwar, Tirumangai Alwar paid visits to worship the Lord Narasimha and equated him with Srimannarayana; and it is the seat of Vidyapitha for the prospective jeers, who are held in high esteem and carrying on several humanitarian activities and spiritual ministrations.
