Aadi Varaha Swamy Temple
Sri Aadi Varaha Swamy Devasthanam (Swamyambhu) is 600 years old ancient temple located near Kamanpur village of Peddapalli District on Peddapalli-Manthani road. The main idol is Sri Varaha Swamy an incarnation of Lord Vishnu.
Located adjoining Singareni open cast project amid thick greenery around, this is the only temple of Varaha Swamy in the country which is not installed in a sanctum sanctorum. The deity is found on a rock on a small hillock. Come rain or shine, the deity is worshipped in open by the devotees. This is the second Varaha Swamy temple in the country after Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam (TTD), Tirupathi.
The specialty here is, there is no temple constructed for the deity. The main idol is situated openly. It is believed that the God does not allow any construction around him. When a devotee tries to construct the temple, the God in his dream not allowed him to build.
Local priests say that the temple emerged some 600 years ago when the incarnation was very small in the size of rat. However, over the years, the incarnation of the god had grown to a height of two feet. It is believed that the incarnation of the god grows every year slightly and it has hairs also.
Devotees from far flung places visit the temple shrine to offer special prayers such as abhishekhams and other rituals.
During the Sravana masam, the pilgrims visit in large numbers to offer prayers. It is believed that the presiding deity offers ‘varalu’ (fulfill the wishes) of the devotees and hence called as Aadhi Varaha Swamy.
