Ahobilam is a town and sacred site in the Allagadda mandal of Kurnool locale in the Indian province of Andhra Pradesh. It is encircled by pleasant slopes of the Eastern Ghats with a few mountain slopes and crevasses. It is the focal point of love of Narasimha, the lion-headed symbol of Vishnu, to whom the nine Hindu sanctuaries and different sanctums generally devoted. The principal town and a sanctuary complex are at Lower Ahobilam. Upper Ahobilam, around 8 kilometers toward the east, has more sanctuaries in a precarious crevasse.
The primary Narashima Swamy sanctuaries at each site were assembled or extended by the sovereigns of Vijayanagara in the fifteenth and sixteenth hundreds of years, then fired by the Mughals in 1578, then, at that point, reestablished and extended at different times, up to the current day. As they stand, they are a combination of work from this multitude of periods.
