Among the other manifestations of Sri Mahavishnu adored here, Lord Narasimha, His fourth incarnation dominates over others, like Vamana, Rama, Krishna, Parasurama etc., it is estimated that there are as many as 32 Narasimhakshetras in Andhra Pradesh and in this respect too Andhra Pradesh tops the list of other states. All the major Narasimhakshetras - Simhachalam. Ahobalam, Kritasaucham and Papaharam are located in this state. His righteous indignation that emanated from Ahobalam pervading the entire region, succeeded in investing the race with a unique psyche - a temperament - highly emotional and easily irritable, yet readily and rapidly subsides to the point of disappearance.

A visit to simhachalam shrine, incidentally, the first of the 16 renowned kshetras included in this book enlightens. So let us proceed.
