  • Ahobilam

    Ahobhilam also known as Ahobalam is located in the Allagadda mandal of Kurnool district in Andhra Pradesh, India. It is located at a distance of 40 km from Nandyal and about 150 km from Kurnool, the district headquarters.
    It is a major pilgrimage site in South India and is one of the 108 Vaishnava Divyadesams. According to the legend, this is where Lord Nirushiman blessed Prahlada and killed the demon Hiranyakashipa.

    Ahobilam is the exact location of the demon Hiranyakashupu's palace, The pillar from which Lord Narasimha arose is marked by its base stone and can be accessed after an almost vertical climb up the hill. It is believed that the entire mountain split up into two, due to the impact of pillar getting shattered by Lord Narasimha and God rising from it subsequently.
