Visit Bhargava Narasimha Temple

Nestled amid the dense Nallamala Forests, Ahobilam, famously known as the Nava Narasimha Kshetra, is the sacred place where Lord Narasimha is worshipped in 9 distinct forms. It is taken as one of the 108 Divya Desams. Ahobilam is noted for being the legendary site where Lord Narasimha (an incarnation of Vishnu) had saved Prahlada from the clutches of Hiranya kashipu. Each form of the lord is worshipped in different temples and each of the temples are dotted in either Upper or Lower Ahobilam that can be reached through roadways or treacherous treks.

The Bhargava Narasimha Temple is located on a hill in Lower Ahobilam and has a sacred pond in its vicinity, the 'Bhargava Teertham', where Bhargava Rama performed rigorous penance and hence the Lord of the temple is known as Bhargava Narasimha Swamy. 'Reaching God is difficult'- hence the roads that lead to the various shrines are filled with rocky paths and thick forests, making trekking a tough affair.

Your quest for spiritual attainment would be a little easy knowing:

  • Few hotels are available in Lower Ahobilam while none are present in Upper Ahobilam.
  • Winter months make the best time to visit the sanctum.
  • Monsoons should be avoided.
  • It is at a distance of ~2km from Lower Ahobilam Bus Stand.
  • Hyderabad and Tirupati are the nearest airports while Nandyal Town and Cuddapah are easily-commutable railheads from the town.
