Ahobilam - Nava Narasimha


The temple of Jwala Nrisimha Swamy, lies higher up the above temple, on a hill called, 'Achalachaya Meru'.
This is about four kilometers from the Upper Ahobilam temple. This place is said to be the actual spot, where
the fierce anger of the Lord reached its culmination when he tore Hiranyakasipu


The temple, situated on the Upper Ahobilam, at a distance of eight kilometers from the Lower Ahobilam,
is the main temple and the earliest of all the nine temples there. The Lord here appears in his fierce aspect,
called Ugra Narasimha, who is the presiding deity of the temple and is known as Ahobila Narasimha Swamy.
It is firmly believed the Lord Narasimha was “Svayambhu’(self- manifest) here.


Nearly two kilometers from the main temple of Upper Ahobilam, is famous shrine of Malola Narasimha Swamy.
The deity here appears is ‘Soumya’ (graceful) form. As Lord Narasimha is seen with his consort, Lakshmi,
He is known as Malola Narasimha Swamy. The word ‘ Malola’ means beloved to Lakshmi
( Ma= Lakshmi, Lola= beloved).


The temple of this Lord is one kilometer away from the main temple of Ahobila Narasimha Swamy
on the Upper Ahobilam. The image of the deity has the face of a boar (Varaha or Kroda)
and the Lord is seen along with his Consort, Lakshmi Hence the Lord of the temple
is known as Krodakara (Varaha) Narasimha Swamy here.


This shire is situated at a distance of one kilometer from the Upper Ahobilam and one furlong
from the road leading to Lower Ahobilam. The image of the deity is installed under a tree,
called ‘ Karanja Vruksham’. Hence this Lord is called Karanja Narasimha Swamy.


The Bhargava Narasimha Swamy is situated at a distance of two kilometers from the Lower Ahobilam,
on a hill, near the sacred pond, known as ‘Bhargava Theertham’. Where Bhargava Rama performed
his penance. Hence the Lord of the temple is known as Bhargava Narasimha Swamy


This temple is to the south-east of Lower Ahobilam at a distance of 2 kilometers.
The popular legend is that after killing Kiranyakasipu, Lord Narasimha taught Prahlada
several yogic postures. Therefore, the Lord in this aspect is called Yogananda Narasimha.


About three kilometers from lower Ahobilam, the image of the deity is installed under a peepal tree,
surrounded by thorny bushes, Hence the Lord is called as Chatravata Narasimha Swamy.


Nearby the above temple, is the shrine of Pavana Narasimha, on the banks of the river,
Pavana and it is about six kilometres from the Upper Ahobilam temple. Hence the Lord of the shrine
is known as Pavana Narasimha Swamy. In addition to the shrines mentioned above,
there is a famous shrine dedicated to God Narasimha Swamy in the Lower Ahobilam,
which is popularly known as Prahlada Varada Sannidhi. The other objects of this place
are 'Ugra Sthambham' and 'Prahlada Mettu'.


At a distance of eight kilometres from the Upper Ahobilam temple, we can see a cleft
of the mountain dividing it into two visible parts. It is a long-held view that from the cleft,
the Lord appeared in the form of Narasimha and this cleft is known as 'Ugra Sthambham'.(b) PRAHALAD
