KRISHNAVTAR  KSHETRAS IN ANDHRA PRADESH

Sripuram - Ranganayaka Aalayam


A pious Vaishnavate bhakta by name Narasimhacharya, follower of Ahobilapeeth sampradaya is the builder of this sacred temple that established great fame during its heyday, about three centuries back. He secured a job in the Domakonda estate after mastering vedic lore at Dharmapuri, deemed a renowned centre of learning then. Desiring to build a temple to Sri Ranganayaka, his choicest daivam at the place of his job, he was traveling to Sripuram to offer soulful prayers to Sri Ranganayaka to bless him in his venture. As if by magic, there came a great transformation in him due to Daiva leela, as it were, he built a temple here itself instead at Domakonda. As the requisite finance could not be met with from him savings, he sought donations from wealthy lords and philanthropists, like the Lords of Gadwal. His earnest request for noble cause won the hearts of the donors. They obliged. In addition, he utilized useful material from the dilapidated temple lying nearby. Public lent whole-hearted support and cooperated in his humanitarian venture. He installed an elegantly sculptured Seshasayi - recumbent Mahavishnu with Sridevi and Bhudevi at his feet and Brahma on lotus rising from his navel, on Jyeshta pournami, very auspicious for installation ceremony. It was a grand event and thousands participated and millions were lifted thereafter by their absolute surrender to the Lord. Later he entered into samadhi on Phalguna masa itself.

Agamic puja is being performed since its inception along with yearly festivals like car festival in Jyeshta, Adhyayanotsav in Pushya, on a grand scale. After centuries, due to waning of public enthusiasm, only name sake worship is offered now on a less impressive manner.

It lies 8 km off NagarKurnool of Palamur district of Andhra Pradesh, having bus convenience.
