ALAMPUR

After visiting this group, the pilgrims go to other group of temples lying at a short distance of a Kilometre and a half on the right bank of Tungabhadra. They are dedicated to Papanatha and the construction is attributed to Rastrakuta's munificent patronage. Among the temples, the Papaneswaraswamy Alayam is in the middle. Its architectural grandeur is comparatively less impressive, though the multipillared halls and huge mantap enshrine many adorable deities. The sculptural adornments represent many episodes. One pecularity observable here is the carving of Navagrahas on the ceiling. The Saptamatruka shrine and the niche enshrining the Mahishasura Mardini deserve visiting for offering prayers. The temples dedicated to Channakesava swamy, Suryanarayana swamy, Narasimha swamy are in the vicinity of Navabrahma Alayas and they are visit-worthy.
