View of Malakonda Temple
It is about 30 km from Kandukur. Situated on a small hill, this temple, set in a thick forest, is an important pilgrimage in the district. The shrine is dedicated to Narasimha,one of the incornation of lord vishnu.
The temple can be approached by road towards Pamuru.The nearest railhead is Singarayakonda railway station.You can be reached Kandukur by Bus.There are number of buses to Pamur,you can get down at Malakonda on the way.
Kesa Kandana Sala (Here devotees offer hair for God)
Sthala Puranam:Oneday Lord vishnu lies on the snake made cot (sesha panpu).Then godess Lakshmi is pressing pressing his legs.Lord vishnu says to lakshmi."Lakshmi you are the mother of the universe,do you have any wish i'll give".Then lakshmi says "I got lord vishnu as my husband .It's enough for me dear".
But on your wish i would like to ask onething hundreds of the peoples suffering with lack of knowledge about "moksham".If anybody chants your name they will get good health and wealth.So please create a holly pilligramage to make peoples as good humanbeings".
Lord Vishnu accepted her wish and asks vanamala who is their favorite devotee to be a hill.She changed herself as a hill name is Malyadri and lord vishnu and godess lakshmi start living on Malyadri.Here we can visit lord vishnu as jwala Narasimha.
The temple opens on weekly once for satur day because once upon a time lord Brahma visits regularly malyadri narasimha.One day a king name is Banumanudu visits malyadri but at thattime no one was there.Lord brahma had just completed his worship and gone.
Then lord Brahma appointed a priest name is Narasimhasarma for the worship on satur day for humanbeings.Banu8manudu complets his worship with the help of priest.Since that day the temple opens on Satur Day Only.This is the story of Malakonda Narasimha Swami.
