SIMHACHALAM

Simhachalam is the place where Lord Sri Mahavishnu saved Prahlad, when the remorseless danavas at the behest of Hiranyakasipu dipping him in the mid-sea placed a fifty mile-long hill over his head to making Jalasamadhi - water-burial. All but for defying his father's autocratic injunction of accepting 'Ahambrahmasmi'creed. When Prahlad uttered Narayana, the Supreme Lord descended down straight at this point and hurled the mountain with a wisp of his single breath and lifted him from the sea; Ahobilam is the sacred spot, where the Omnipotent Lord proved his Omnipresence - God abides in every object; Kritasaucham is the holy spot, where Narasimha cleansed of his body, stained with the wicked, impure flood of that Rakshasadhama; and finally the Papaharam is the superb, sequestered place, where Narsimha took rest in the form of Bidala Narakesari for some time. All these four are located in Andhra Pradesh and are visited and adored by almost all, irrespective of "ISM" that is splitting mankind into fragments and tagging fantastic labels. Along with the above, the much venerated Mangalagiri Panakala Narasimhaswamy, the largely visited Yadagiri Lakshmi Narasimhaswamy shrines are also situated in Andhra Pradesh, testifying to their abiding faith in that God, and the unexceptional ardour for Narasimhopasana that added an ever-green laurel to their exemplary dedication to the Almighty God Sri Mahavishnu.
