NARASIMHAVATARA KSHETRAS IN ANDHRA PRADESH

Mamillapalli - Narasimha Aalayam

This ancient Narasimhaalaya popularly called the second Simhachalam is said to have been built by Maharaja Gokarna in the early twelfth century along with four more shrines dedicated to Venkateswara, Ganapathi, Bhairava, Saptamatrukas in the four directions of the town. According to sthalapurana, Lord Narasimha was on his way to His sister's house and rested here under a mango tree for sometime. As His sports were widely known and the rewards for pure devotion were publicized, a temple of modest size was built. It contains garbhagriha, Sukanasini and main mantap in addition to several pavilions for Garudalwar etc. The temple faces north, but the entrance on the east with a five-storeyed tower. The Vimana of the temple is beautified by charming sculptural pieces of Yasoda Krishna, Makaratoranam etc.

Many eminent Sankirthanacharyas and pravaktas adored this Mulavirat with fine pieces of verse. And ardent devotees composed Suprabhatam and Sthalapurana for the benefit of visiting public and propagation of the glory of this kshetra.

Annual festivals like Brahmotsavam, Narasimha Jayanti are celebrated with unprecedented devotional fervour in the months of Phalguna and Vaisaka corresponding to Feb-March and May-June. They lure thousands of devotees.

It lies 4 km off Rakonda of Vuppumitala Mandalam of Palamur district of Andhra Pradesh and transport facilities are available from Achampet, the taluq headquarters town linked with several important towns by APRTC buses.
