    Ahobilam The Land of Nava Narasimha Swamy Temples:

    A small village nestled amongst Nallmalla Hills near Kurnool in Andhrapradesh about 380km from Hyderabad. Ahobilam is the place where Lord Narasimha(avatar of Vishnu) killed Hiranyakasipu and saved his son prahalada. Aho means "great" and Balam means "strength". Ahobilam consists of 9 Narasimha temples of which 5 are in caves situated in deep forests and needs good amount of trekking. The temple is divided into 2 parts - Upper Ahobilam and Lower Ahobilam, called as Eguva and Diguva Ahobilam respectively, in local language. Upper Ahobilam is about 8km away from lower Ahobilam. Of these nine shrines, Yogananda, Chathravata and Bhargava Narasimha swami shrines are in lower Ahobilam and the remaining six are in upper Ahobilam. There is also another temple of Lord Narasimha Swami, called as Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Swami temple, in the lower Ahobilam where the idol of the Lord is believed to be installed by Lord Venkateshwara of Tirupati. The Lord in this shrine can be called as the tenth form of Lord Narasimha Swami. Later, the temple was built by the rulers of Vijayanagara Empire. A local tribe called ‘Chencu’ inhabits the place. Ahobilam has a major eligious significance and is the major centre of pilgrimage in south India located in Nandyal in Kurnool district of Andhra Pradesh. Also known as "Singavel Kundram", Ahobilam is the abode of Lord Narasimha, an incarnation of Lord Vishnu in man-lion form.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
