Rajanala Banda - Lakshmi Narasimhaswamy Aalayam
The glory of Hinduism lies in seeing God in every object - animate and inanimate. Beliefs and traditions have categorically
and unmistakably proved time and again the existence of God in all objects, as exemplified by incalculable evidences shown
to the world by the dedicated high souled persons. The age-old mute inanimate icons installed in millions and trillions of
shrines entered into dialogue with the devotees and demonstrated their potentialities for the sole purpose of leading them to
the right path and emancipate in accordance with the wishes of the adorers. The hard-core sceptics may dismiss them
labelling as 'Nonsense, but majority of the true sons of soil are still holding on to the yuga sold beliefs, saying they are right
out and out. And for ever.
Among such beliefs existing, the hill temple Lakshmi Narasimha swamy atop the hill and the Anjaneyaswamy temple at the
foot of the same hill merit reverent attention and ardent adoration. The temple on the hillock is dedicated to Lakshmi
Narasimha swamy and it is an old one of moderate dimensions and minimal sculptural artistry. Yet he is infinitely benevolent
and comas to rescue of the true Bhaktas at a mere call in a moment". Moreover, he deals out justice unbiased, and
ruthlessly punishes frauds, impostors, humbugs and a wide variety of their brood, who dare entering into the orbit of his
divya kshetra. With the inexhaustibly unlimited coordination and concurrence of Anjaneya, his mount dwelling in a shine at
the foot of the hill, he chastises, corrects and finally delivers capital punishment, if repentance does not emanate from the
On the Rajanala Banda, where the hoary shrines are situated, no culprit, either dares swearing false, or tries evading his
presence here when called upon. It is the unofficial seat of highest judicature, where God sits in judgment in his ethereal
form to right the wronged. Not only the people living in this zone, but from ether states like Tamil Nadu and Karnataka are
visiting and receiving the all-adorable and never failing divine justice. This noble service is rendered to the public by the
organisers of the Anjaneyaswamy temple by collecting a nominal fee. Many periodical festivals are celebrated in both the
temples with great devotional fervour. Narasimhaswamy with his benevolent ferocity, and Anjaneya with abundant
potentiality are saving the righteous men from the clutches of the Satanic forces. Next to Kanipakkam Pillayarappa temple
near Chittoor this is serving as a freely accessible divine court for impartial divine judgement.
It lies 7 km off Chowdepalli of Chittoor district of Andhra Pradesh, accessible by bus from Chittoor and other towns.
