Ahobilam: When the Supreme Lord incarnated as Lord Narasimhadev, he tore apart Hiranyakashipu into pieces. Witnessing this wonderful pastime, the demigods praised Lord Narasimhadev as ‘ahobala’ meaning ‘the great strength’.
Lord Rama worshiped Nava narasimhar to get back seetha.
Garuda meditated on one of the mountains in the Nallamallai hills range for thousands of years. Being pleased by his meditation, the Lord manifested Himself in that cave. There are nine temples of Lord Narasimha in Ahobilam which house the self-manifested Deities of the Lord.
The nine Deities are Sri Jwala Narasimha, Sri Ahobila Narasimha, Sri Malola Narasimha, Sri Kroda Narasimha, Sri Karanja Narasimha, Sri Bhargava Narasimha, Sri Yogananda Narasimha, Sri Kshatravata Narasimha and Sri Pavana Narasimha.
Srisailam : Lord Shiva in this temple is referred to as one of the twelve Jyotirlingas. Goddess Bramarambha's shrine is referred to as one of the fifty two Shakti peethas. This temple is classified as one of the Paadal Petra Sthalam.
