KALKAVATAR KSHETRAS IN ANDHRA PRADESH

Nizamabad - Venkateswara Swamy Aalayam

Indrapuri was the ancient name of this modern Nizambad, possessing invaluable spiritual wealth in the form of temples and monuments. Before its occupation by Muslim rulers it was popularly called Indur. There are as many as five regularly visited places of worship dedicated to premier gods, like Siva, Ranganatha, Venkateswara, Hanuma and Rama, and they are going by the names of Nilakanteswara aalaya, Ranganaathalaya, Venkateswaraalaya, Hanumanaalaya and Bada Rama mandir. Each shrine is noted for one unique feature or the other and is luring the devotees throughout the year, as exemplified the Flag of Venkateswara aalaya is taken to Tirupathi soon after the Dwajarohana ceremony and brought back after due prayers. When arrived hundreds of devotees, who could not travel to the Seven Hills redeem their vows to this Sacred Flag deeming it a sacred deputy of God. This is a much honoured tradition and being carried on for ages. The temple is fairly big and possess all essential parts. The icon of Venkateswara is sthanaka - standing posture and bears resemblance to Tirupathi Balaji. Agamic worship is made regularly and annual festivals attract huge crowds. In the Nilakanteswara aalaya, the Sun's rays fall on the Sivalinga on the Rathasaptami day and the special prayer services last for two days then. And the Bada Rama mandir celebrate Sri Ramanavami with unprecedented fanfare. Thus each has a unique feature attracting huge crowds justifying the name Indrapuri perhaps.

It is a rail head on the Kachiguda-Manmad broad guage line and being the district headquarters town of Andhra Pradesh, commands all facilities.
