ALAMPUR

The main entrance of the Navabrahma group lies at the extreme North; there is provision for passage round the shrine for making Pradakshana in the fortress like Prakara. The archamurthis of the Navabrahmas - Balabrahma, Kumarabrahma, Arkabrahma, Virabrahma, Tarakabrahma, Garudabrahma, Swargabrahma and Padmabrahma are Sivalingas only. The nine aspects of Brahma are adored thus. This uniqueness surprises one and all. The Jogulabma is the principal goddess worshipped here, and she is one of the eighteen forms of Sakti. She is equated with Kasivisalakshi in all aspects, and is enshrined in a grand shrine, built in the agneya direction. She is a synonym for Parvathi. The Bala Brahmeswaraswamy is the Presiding Deity, and according to tradition, Brahma did penance for centuries and was conferred the powers of creation by this deity. Several episodes from the Sthalapurana are artistically carved on walls and ceilings. Their visual appeal is great, and acquaints the visitors with the greatness of the temples.
