MANGALAGIRI

And it is this Narasimhaswamy that is conferring emancipation by a mere single visit with soulful prayer; it is here Anjaneya is dwelling permanently as kshetrapalaka at the instance of Sri Rama for lokakalyana; it is in this kshetra lies the grand shrine of Lakshminarasimhaswamy built by Yudhishtara in Dwaparayuga; it is this holy place visited by Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, Adisankara, Ramanujacharya who sung in praise of the archamurthi; it is this kshetra sanctified by the Laksmi Pushkarini built for the ceremonial bath of Srimahalakshmi before joining Vaikunta as the consort of Sri Mahavishnu; it is the holiness of this place that keeps sweet meats and jaggery from the menace of ants and flies as evidenced by their absence in and around temple precincts though mounds of jaggery are used to offer pankapuja to the Lord; it is here in the dim past Hrusva Sringi, a prince did penance and assumed the shape of an elephant before forming into mountain to be freed from his father's exhortation to return home, giving up a life of austerity.

Renowned for such occurrences and abound in many miracles, this famous hill, a part of the Eastern ghats in casting fascination over devotees since the Kritayuga onwards and they are testified by scriptural proof. Among the 32 Narasimha Kshetras of Andhra Pradesh, this is occupying a coveted place, and is drawing pilgrims in thousands through out the year. The oddity of Panakapuja and the drinking of panaka by the Mulavirat is exercising irresistible fascination over tourists, and it is on the increase even in the science oriented modern age.
