Pure natural location

Penchalakona is very good natural location and free pollution area. This is a very historical place and tourist place. In this place once upon a time every Saturday open the silver umbrella on the top of Hills. So the God's name was called CHATRAVATHI LAKSHMI NARASIMHA SWAMY. This place I mean THE GOD was discussed the people of GONUPALLI. The Penchalakona place one the parts of the GONUPALLI Gramapanchayathi. So I will provide of my birth place in Gonupalli.

Temple in an adventurous place

It's just amazing. It is 80 km away from Nellore. We can do a adventure on its hills, I felt very much happy at that time. Me and my family were very happy about that experience.

Temple town under the foothill

The location of this ancient temple is nice. There is no need to climb any steps. The temple is ancient still they got fans on ceilings, painted recently I suppose. Lord Lakshmi Narasimha is awe inspiring, Lakshmi is below him. Lord Anjaneya is in another temple in front. On the side Amman Temple is there. Going round the temple is through mountain forest - the sun will be harsh. There are canals and pond - unfortunately no water. It is around 90-100 km from Nellore. Please keep 5-6 hours free to visit. Good free food is available - served on table chair. There are rooms available for different section of people. The drive to this hill is beautiful.

Powerful God in the middle of beautiful nature

I heard about this temple from one of my friend and we visited this temple during Brahmotsavalu and it really lived up to the hype.As we have prebooked the accommodation we were bit relaxed otherwise it will be tough to get rooms here as they have limited number of rooms. So I recommend the pilgrims to check with the temple regarding the accommodation before going.State Bus transport have services to this temple from nearby urban places for every 20 minutes.There is a waterfalls just beside the temple and everyone says its good if we dip in the water there and there are Seven Hill around the temple and we can trek on to the mountains. We tried trekking upto 3rd mountain and heard no one has crossed 4th mountain till date and it's really a nature's paradise.I recommend people to visit during Winter or Monsoon as it will be very hot during Summer.

Good to visit Penchalakona for 'Narasimhaswami darshanam'

Good to visit Penchalakona for 'Narasimhaswami darshanam'. The temple is very famous and has a nice climate always, because it is a hilly area. While travelling to Penchalakona, don't carry heavy luggage. There are many other temples to visit.

Pleasant scenary

The temple is on the top of the hill. No crowd on that day we visited during summer so no greenery. We stayed for half an hour in the temple.
