Mangalagiri Panakala Swamy Temple, Mangalagiri, Vijayawada

Mangalagiri Panakala Swamy (Lord Narasimha Temple)

The renowned temple of Lord Narasimha, one of the nine avatars of Vishnu, is located on the hillock at Mangalagiri, 12km’s South of Vijayawada. The unique feature of this temple, according to the devout, is the fact that the deity accepts only half the quantity of panakam (jaggery dissolved in water) offered by devotees, irrespective of the quantity offered. Another site of religious significance in Vijayawada is Hazrat Bal Mosque. A holy relic of the Prophet Mohammed is kept here and displayed once a year. St. Mary’s church, set on a hillock in the eastern side of the town at Gundala, is also worth visiting.
