Lord Hanuman & Lord Narasimha Swamy

Temple History

Lord Narasimha Swamy and Lord Prasannanjaneya swamy temples are situated beside the Addanki-Narasaraopet road near Addanki city.

Sri Narasimha Swamy temple is situated on a small hill and Sri Prasannanjaneya swamy temple is on down hill. These temples are developed during Sri Krishnadevaraya of Vijayanagara
dynasty. According to the shilashasanam these temples belongs to 14 th century.

During the 14th century, Singanna a devotee of Lakshminarasimha Swamy used to live in a village near by the hill. His daughter named Narsamma used to take their cows for gazing on the hill. They observed that one of the cows was not giving milk for several days. To find out the reason, Singanna followed the cow secretly and observed that the cow went to a rock on the hill and stood. A boy came out of the rock and sucks the milk from the cow and disappeared. Singanna felt that his beloved God Sri Lakshminarasimha Swamy only came as a boy and took the milk from the cow. Singanna built the Sri Lakshminarasimha Swamy temple on the hill with this belief. Later on people started calling this hill as Singarakonda.

Around 210 years ago (end of 17th century), during the inauguration of Dwaja Stambham in the premises of Sri Lakshminarasimha Swamy temple, thousands of devotees were witnessed that a Yogi installed Sri Prasannanjaneya Swamy idol at Bhavanasi tank below the Singarakonda hill and disappeared. The devotees started praying Sri Prasannanjaneya Swamy at Singarakonda.

There is another strong belief that Sri Hanuman was stayed a day at Singarakonda during his way to Srilanka to search Sita Devi. This could be the reason that Sri Prasannanjaneya Swamy idol is facing south which is a very rare Sri Hanuman darshan for devotees.

Tirunallu, Bramhotsvam and Hanumath Jayanthi festivals are grandly celebrated here. During this large crowd of devotees participate from the surrounding and other cities.
