NARASIMHAVATARA KSHETRAS IN ANDHRA PRADESH

Lakshmipuram - Narasimhaswamy Aalayam

This famous hill temple much deserves to be called the second Ahobalam on account of the existence of nine temples dedicated to the nine forms of Lord Narasimha, like Varaha, Bala, Vriddha, Vugra, Yoga, Santha, Prasanna and Varada Narasimha. Due to ravages of time and improper maintenance there exist now only five temples for Pancha Narasimhas Varaha, Bala, Vriddha, Vugra and Yoga only. There are many icons of several deities, like Hayagriva, Hanumanta, Siva, Mahishasuramardini, Bhairava installed in well-built independent mini-shrines. Another speciality that strikes the eye is the presence of an independent minishrine for Varahamurthi situated just opposite the Mulavirat. In addition, there are separate shrines for Adilakshmi and Chenchulakshmi, the beloved consorts of the Lord. The icon of Chenchulakshmi holds in hand bow and arrow, and it is surmised that the village derived name due to this potent murti. The image of Mahishasuramardini with its mount Yali is enshrined in a pretty pavilion and it is another unique feature here. The majestic image of Bhairav, the kshetrapalaka of this kshetra is placed at a higher level and is receiving worship by the visitors due to his conspicuous place. The craftsmanship of the sculptors peeps at every inch of the artistically made images and they heighten the piety of the devotees. 'Me Chalukyan art and its glory permeates every image and wrings veneration. With such invaluable art pieces, the temple is luring the visitors throughout the year, but during periodical festivals, like Narasimha Jayanti the number exceeds thousands.

'This lies 4 km off the south-west of Vankeswaram in the taluq of Achampet of Karimnagar district of AT, commanding transport facilities.
