MANGALAGIRI

The Mulavirat is adorned with a neck chain containing 108 Salagramas. A rare make, and a grand jewel worthy to be worn by a Lord of Narasimharupa alone. There is a car in this temple made of wood and displaying the exquisite carvings of many stories from the epics like the Ramayana, Mahabharata and Bhagavatha. The craftsmanship is of superior kind and enthralls the viewers with many interesting episodes of eternal interest. It was visited by spiritual dignitaries like Sri Sankaracharya, Ramanuja and Chaitanya Prabhu. And imperial monarchs like Sri Krishna Devaraya. The several inscriptions found on the walls help to trace the history of the temple since its inception.

It is believed that this kshetra grants mokshaprapti with mere single visit. Lord Sri Rama, it is recorded, visited this kshetra and obtained Mukti. As the story goes, despite his adherence to righteousness and striving for Dharmapalana, he had problems and they robbed him of his mental peace and physical tenor. When advised by his Kulaguru, he visited and worshipped this Lord. He got what he lost. And can be obtained if only proper approach is made.
