NARASIMHAVATARA KSHETRAS IN ANDHRA PRADESH

Draksharamam - Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Aalayam

It is quite amazing to. hear that Lord Narasimha voluntarily accepted to be the kshetrapalaka - Chief Security Officer of this famous Bhimeswar temple. On account of holding this responsible high office, the highly venerated Bhimeswaraswamy, the presiding deity has given VIP treatment to Narasimhaswamy and hence he is put on par with him in this sacred Draksharama kshetra. In general practice, although the kshetrapalaka is adored regularly along with the atchamurti, he is not placed on the same Vedika during the annual festivals, nor is he worshipped in the same way as that of the archamurti. Perhaps, due to Omni compassion of Bhimeswaraswamy, the Kshetrapalaka-Sri Lakshmi Narasimha swamy is equated-with him. His icon is installed in a modestly built mandir with all the indispensable parts. Agamic puja is offered with utmost zeal everyday and visitors too fail not paying obeisance to this Lord on their visit. He is lifting the adorers on the merits of their deeds. It is said this icon was installed by Sri Rama himself in the Tretayuga and since then his position is mounting only, but had never taken downward motion at anytime since inception. During the auspicious Bhishma Eakadasi, Magha Suddho Eakadasi, Kalyanotsav for both these gods are celebrated with great pomp. and splendour. It is the biggest draw of the temple. Legends have accorded great spiritual signification to this holy Sivakesava kshetra. The temple was munificently endowed by Reddy dynasty in the fourteenth century and now enjoying the protection of the Archeological Department.

It lies in Draksharama pilgrim town, accessible by bus from Ramachandrapuram or train from Kakinada, the famous town in the state of A.P.
