NARASIMHAVATARA KSHETRAS IN ANDHRA PRADESH

Alampur - Lakshminarasimha Aalayam

Alampur flashes across our minds, the much-renowned Navabrahma aalayas, the like of which are not found anywhere in 13harat or elsewhere. It is a confluence of not only rivers - Vedavathi and Nadvathi, but also of several major sects of Hinduism, like Sakteyam, Vaishnavam and Saivam. Several well-built temples for gods, like Siva, Suryanarayana, Narasimha, Jogulamba are still visited, despite their decadent condition wrings tears. The Lakshmi Narasimha temple is drawing a steady stream of devotees round the year. The temples having received munificent patronage are vast in dimensions and impressive in architecture. The craftsmanship of the sculptor's peeps at the visitors, if they rivet their attention on them.

The Lakshmi Narasimha' aalaya has all the essential parts, as it is an independent temple, having its own agamic puja and periodical festivals carried on with great devotional zeal due. It is not an integral part of Navabrahmalaayas, and so said to have been built by Chalukyas and Rashtrakuta kings. Vijayanagara emperors endowed it in several ways. The garbhagriha enshrines on a high dias the beautiful icon of Narasimha with his consort lakshmi. Its size and sculptor's artistry joins palms in veneration at first sight itself. The annual festival celebrated in Vaisakha masa draws huge crowds and moreover devotees either on their way to Srisailam, or on return trip visit this Aalaya and offer prayers.

It lies near Kurnool on the Bombay-Guntakal broad guage line and accessible by four-wheelers from Alampur railway station in the Mahaboobnagar district of A.P.
