On coming down, and when we look up high into the blue sky, we find that the hill Mangalagiri is in the shape of an elephant in reclining posture and the temple situated at its mouth. It is nestled midway between the Sikhara and the foot of hill. This temple town possess many other gems, besides the Panakala Narasimhaswamy, like the Rajya Lakshmi Narasimhaswamy Alayam, Bramarambha Malleswaraswamy Alayam, Lakshmi Satyanarayana swamy Alayam, Venkateswara Alayam etc. Each possessing certain unique features demanding visiting for salvation.

The Rajyalakshmi Narasimha Alayam is quite imposing in dimensions, and has a 153 feet high by 38 feet broad tower over the entrance, supposed to the highest in the Andhra Pradesh. This grand high tower was a contribution made by Vasireddy Venkataswamy Naidu, a famous king ruling this region from his capital Amaravathi. This eleven storeyed main gopura faces the East. The three others are ancient and much hallowed, but they draw the devotees with interesting episodes occurred in the lives of ardent devotees visiting them since long.
