AHOBILAM NARASIMHA SWAMY KSHETRAM: KURNOOL (AP)
#andhratemples

Ahobilam is the place where Prabhu appears in his fierce form, called Ugra Narasimha, who is Svayambhu (self-manifest).
Ahobilam is one of the 108 Divya Desams. It has 9 shrines for different forms of Narsimha.
Ahobilam was the exact place where Sri Narasimha appeared and tore apart Hiranyakashipu to save Prahlad. At that moment, all the Devas appeared and praised him as Ahobala (Aho is mighty and bala is strength). So the place came to be called Ahobilam.
Out of the 9 shrines, most famous is the Ahobila Narasimha Swamy where Prabhu is seen as Ugra Narasimha.
In another shrine, Prabhu appears as Malola Narasimha Swamy. Malola means beloved of Lakshmi. Here Prabhu is in peaceful mudra with his consort Ma ChenchuLakshmi.

Considered one of the finest examples of Vijayanagara architecture, the Chintalarayaswamy Temple is a site for the worship of Chintala Venkataramana Swamy, a form of Lord Vishnu. The temple was built by the Pemmasani Nayaks, specifically Pemmasani Timmanayudu II, in the 1500s. Image
Located in Tadipatri, Andhra Pradesh, the temple has a striking resemblance to the Vijaya Vitthala Temple in Hampi, including for the fact that there is a stone chariot in the temple complex, & is considered a Monument of National Importance by the Archaeological Survey of India. Image
The temple was constructed following a dream that Pemmasani Timmanayudu had where Lord Vishnu himself is said to have informed Timmanayudu of His incarnation at the site and that there should be a majestic temple constructed here so that devotees can worship Him (Lord Vishnu). Image
