Sthala Puranam ( Temple in the legends ) :

The Maha Kshetram is in the midst of a dense and lovely forest, which instills awe and inspiration in the minds of the visiting pilgrims. In one of the caves adjoining the pilgrim town, the image of the Lord has been radiating glory from times immemorial. Legend had it that Sri Bharadwaaja Maharshi worshipped this deity everyday accompanied by several other sages. In those unknown times, only sages and gods could worship the self revealed images of Narasimha in the cave. Later the sages who had the welfare of this world at their heart, decided to throw open this holy place to the common man. An auspicious time for it came in Kali Yuga.The deity was revealed in a dream to the devotee Sri Anumala Machireddi, the ruler of Thangeda which is 3 km off Mattapalli on the opposite bank of the Krishna river. The Lord wished Machireddi to reveal his image for the good of the mankind during Kali Yuga. The ruler accompanied by his pandits, searched all the caves on the banks of river Krishna, as ordained by the Lord, but could not trace the location of the deity. Sad and depressed, he fell asleep in the forest. Again the Lord appeared in his dream and ordained him to search further, in a designated area near an "Aare" tree hidden behind the foliage in a cave. Waking up, the ruler found the cave and the image of the Lord in a seated posture, with the wellspread hood of Sesha over his head, fully adorned with Shankha Chakra Gadha and as if the Lord was being worshipped regularly, with flowers, sacred leaves, fruits etc. Overjoyed, the ruler revealed the Maha Kshetram to the general public and constructed a Mukhaalaya.

More about Sri Anumala Machireddy :

The name and fame of Machireddi has lived down to this day and we still see his benevolence and benefaction inscribed in the golden kalasams in the Siva temple of Srisailam,and others like Kasi Visheswara, Lord Gopala in Thangeda etc.However the fort of Thangeda is now in ruins.

An incident in history :

Chennuri Sri Narasimha Rao, Chairman of the temple committee, said that one " Chennuri Giramma", belonging to his great-grand-forefathers was an ardent devotee of Sri Mattapalli Narasimha. She lived during the period of the Mughal emperor Aurangazeb. When Mughal forces were to attack the temple, she prayed to the Lord to dispell the danger. Then the Lord created countless bees which attacked and drove the Mughal soldiers away. Their attempt to capture this temple proved a futile exercise. However there is no historic recorded information to support this.

Description of the Garbhagriha ( sanctum sanctorum ) :

There is a rock above the door to the sanctum sanctorum. On it is the sculptured motif of Gaja Lakshmi with two elephants raising their trunks upwards on either side. The sanctum is a cave. The roof of the Garbhagriha is a big rock.

The Lord manifested Himself on a rock, which is on the backside of the Garbhagriha. Another rock is spread like the hood of Sesha over it. The Lord is 1 foot in height. Seated in Padmasana, He holds, Chakra in His upper right hand and Sankha in His upper left hand. He has kept His lower left hand on His left knee, and His lower right hand is not visible. On the left side of the Lord, ther are decorated three Namams ( Thirumann ), and two eyes, which are considered as the form of Prahlada, the ardent devotee of the Lord. There is a small lengthy rectangular rock of about 1 foot length at the feet of the Lord. The rock is said to be "Chakri", an ardent devotee of the Lord who was not given mukti when he requested for the same because the Lord did not want to be separated from him. So he was made into a rock like form and placed in the sanctum. Daily the abhishekam is performed to this rock also.

To the left of the manifested Lord, there is a black, stone image of Lakshmi which is 1.5 feet in height, in a sitting posture on a lotus. She holds lotus flowers in her upper hands. Her lower right hand is in Abhaya posture and the left hand is in Suchi posture. Below the Lakshmi image, there is another image of Lakshmi, which is carved on a rock. As Lakshmi is not visible to the visitors, the image of Rajya Lakshmi is installed for the 'darsan' of the devotees. It was consecrated in 1975. She holds chakra in her upper right hand and Sankha in her left hand. She holds lotus buds in her lower hands. She is in sitting posture. She is 1.25 feet in height. She wears a makuta on Her head.

Before the presiding deity, at a lower level, the utsava idols of the Lord are installed. There are also copper images of Sudarsana, Nammazhwar and another Azhwar.

To the right side of the sanctum, leading to the north door, there are eleven black stone images of the Azhwars, seven of which face the west and the remaining four face east. There is a trench on the left side of the Lord at some distance in the cave, which it is believed to lead to the river Krishna through an underground passage.

Description of the temple :

The sanctum faces the west. The mukhamantapam has 21 pillars with a cement roof. Before the Vaikunta dvaara ( North door ) there is a mantapa with five pillars with a cement roof. It was built in 1973-75. It measures 21feet X 18 feet. The mukhamantapam before the sanctum measures 24feet X 45 feet. The height of the mukhamantapam is about 20feet. As there is no convenience to go around the sanctum, the devotees perform circumambulation ( pradakshinam ) around the Dhwajasthambha and the stone image of Hanuman which faces the Lord. There is a Ramanuja Kutam ( Madapalli or kitchen ) to the north of the temple in the same premises where in, the naivedya to the Lord is prepared.

There is an entrance to the temple which faces the south. There is a fleet of steps leading down to the river Krishna just outside the main temple but within the compound.

Temple Traditions :

Vaikhaanasa Aagama is followed here. The priest is a Sri Vaisnava who is a heriditory priest. There is a Vedic pandit who recites Vedas and other mantras at appropriate occasions. The daily programme of the temple is as follows:
05.00 Suprabhatam
0600 Viswaroopam and Abhishekham after removing kavachams

1600 Reopening of Temple doors and Archana
1700-1900 Darsanam
1900 Naivedyam and Viniyogam
1930 Kavaatabandhanam

Special Events :

On every friday, ther is a seva of Andal at 6pm with the procession by devotees.

Adhyayana utsavas precede the annual festival of the Lord for 3 days from Chaithra Sudhdha Dasami to Dvadasi. The annual festival is celebrated from Chaithra Sudhdha Trayodasi to Bahula Tadiya.

The following festivals are celebrated in the temple viz., Ugadi, Sri Raama Navami, Sri Nrusimha Jayanthi, Sri Krishna Jayanthi, Vijaya Dasami, Vaikuntha Ekadasi, Dhanurmasa Aaradhanam and Sankaranthi.

On the occasion of the Brahmotsavas, Mukkoti Ekadasi and Nrusimha Jayanthi, about 5000 devotees from local and other areas congregate. During these days, one-act-plays, dramas, dances, harikatha, bhajan and songs afford entertainment to the devotees. The special feature of this temple is giving free food to all the pilgrims on these days.

Temple Trust :

The temple committee associated with the Andhra Pradesh Endowments Department runs the temple with liberal contributions from the pilgrims. The chairman is Sri Chennuri Narasimha Rao who stays at Huzurnagar buts visits the temple almost daily. He can be contacted for arrangements to be made for the devotees.

Boarding and Lodging facilities :

Stay facilities are available in the form of Choultries. There are Brahman Chathtrams and Vysya Chaththrams which are given free of cost to the devotees who visit the temple. However it is desirable to offer nominal contributions to the Chaththram Authotities.

Once reaching Mattapalli, one may inform Brahmana Chaththram for food requirements. Here again food is given free of cost. However devotees may donate nominal amounts towards expenses according to their will.

Near the temple, there is only one shop for general items. Therefore it is advisable to take all personal requirements especially medicines when one visits Mattapalli. The nearest town is Huzurnagar which is 25km away.

Importance of this Kshetram :

There is a popular verse which goes thus :-
"Ekameva Kshetram, Mattapalli Kshetram, Na Anyat Kshetram, Mattapalli Tulyam, Ekameva Tatvam, Mattapalli Naatham, na Anyat Tatvam, Palli Simha Tulyam

which means "Mattapalli is the only pilgrim spot. 
There is no secondary whatsoever and there is no equal to it. 
There is only one Lord and He is the Lord of Mattapalli. 
There no secondary whosoever and none is comparable to him."

There is a belief that incurable diseases will be cured and the evil spirits will be driven out and all desires will be fulfilled by the Lord if one stays in Mattapalli for 11 days and 11 nights and performs 32 pradakshinams thrice a day with wet clothes having bathed in the Krishna river each time.

Another important feature is the possession of a rare type of conch by the temple called Dakshina Vriththa Sankha. It is said that if one keeps it near his ear, a booming sound of the sacred Pranava also called Taaram, echoes out of it. This type of conch is present only at the Kasi temple and nowhere else.

Route to reach Mattapalli:

Mattapalli is 25km from Huzurnagar. Huzurnagar can be approached from Kodada or Miryalaguda. Kodada is on the Vijayawada - Hyderabad Highway and is 15km from Huzurnagar. Kodada is 175km from Hyderabad and 100km from Vijayawada.

Mukkoor Lakshminarasimhachariar
Mattapalli, not very well-known some years ago, was made popular by the late Sri Mukkur Lakshminarasimhachariar, who unfailingly spoke about the Lord in all his discourses, and as those who had attended his discourses say, the Lord, too, spoke through him.

Mattapallinathan - Moolavar video

Wonderful video about Bharatwaja Maharishi cave in Mattapalli.

Few suggestions (as of nov 2010)
Based on our recent visit to this temple:-
1) Do not miss the palabishegam which is done daily at around 5.30am. (100 Rs ticket)
2) Its bit difficult to cover all the 5 pancha narasimhar temples in two days unless you plan properly.
 Try to start early in the morning because all nearby temples will be closed in the noon.
3) Please make every effort to bath in Krishnaveni river. Avoid using bathrooms for bathing.
4) Contact bhramna chatram / Mukoor trust admistrator Gopal for proper food
5) Carry bedspread / Bedsheets
6) From mattapally you can travel to wadapally using boats.
These boats are capable of carrying vans/trucks etc. Doing so will save a lot of travel time.

  2. I am Dr. T. Srinivasa Rao, every year I visit along with my family members on the occasion of Nrusimha Jayanthi and participate in the swamyvari kalyanam. This is one of the pious temples of Andhra Pradesh and no words are suffecient to express the divinity of this temple.

    1. can you tell me the dates on which Nrusimha Jayanthi will be celebrated each year. I need dates for 1989 and 1990

  3. Hello Dr. T. Srinivasa Rao,

    Agree to you fully.
    Place is divine, may be part of heaven!

    I really cherish the day we spent in Mattapalli. Wish to stay there for 11 days and get His blessings..

      Thank you,

    2. Dear Swami, wish to take you to Mattapalli ... :(
      we stay out of India, so not possible for me immediately.

      I dont think, there is straight bus from Vijayawada to Mattapalli.
      We used train for Chennai to Vijayawada and from Vijayawada to Mattapalli, we traveled in car.

      Im sure, Sri Mattapallinathan will show you path soon.

      Narasimha bakthai

    3. Dear Subramanian Ji,

      Here is how you can reach Mattapalli:

      1. Take Chennai-Hyderabad Super Fast express train Number 12603. Book the ticket until Miryalaguda station
      2. The train reaches Miryalaguda station at 2:30am and will only stop 1 min
      3. From Miryalaguda you can take Govt TSRTC bus to Mattapalli directly or alternatively Miryalaguda- Huzurnagar- Mattapalli. The Bus stops right infront of the temple.

      Abhishekam is performed early morning at 5:30 to swamy and it is so blessed to watch the Lord.

      I hope and pray this information reaches you and you have a wonderful darshan of the lord.


  4. Thanks Priya. I was referred to your blog by PB Varadharajan, a good friend of mine, who has been there recently. I enjoyed reading your well researched reports about the place. I hope one day I will be able to visit it. Please , if possible let me know when Narsimha Jayanti occurs, may be I could try to plan on that day. I hope because of the remoteness, it will not be very crowded on those days.


  5. Hi Mohan
    Thanks. Just now we had Narasimha Jayanthi(May16) for this year. But any day should be fine. Please try visiting it as soon as possible and stay there for a day atleast.


  6. I came to know about this temple from the book of late Shri Mukkur Swamigal and want to visit and stay in the temple for 11 days and 11 nights as has been advised by Shri Mukkur Swamigal. I pray to Shri. Maattapalli Nathan to bestow his grace on me and my family, by allowing me to be there,for 11 days to perform 96 prathakshanams by reciting Shri Manthra rajapatha stothiram. Oh Lord please make it possible.

  7. I once again make my appeal to the LORD to allow me to stay in Mattapalli for 11 days and 11 nights and to perform 96 Prathakshnams as advised by Late Shri Mukkur Swamigal duly chanting Shri.Manthra Rajapatha Stothiram during the course of Prathakshnams. O Lord Kindly do bless me and my family and that of my friend K.Ganesan of Chennai. Our Pranams to the LORD of Matapalli.Oh Lord please make it possbile. With Prayers from me and my family.

  9. Hi Athmaram,

    I'm cent percent sure that he will definitively bless you that way.

    Warm Regards


  11. Dear All,

    This temple is so powerful bcoz of my beloved Mukkur swamy. He still lives in the caves of Mattapalli & does Aradhana to Lord Narashima with his sukshima Sariram on every day.

    Swami is Nithya Surigal & no doubt he is in carination of Lord Narashiman.

    No human being in this world can perform Yagna like swamy performed with so much discipline.

    We all blessed to have Darshan of Swamy & Yagna.

    I always feel swamy is with us in different form - He is kaliyuga Karuna Murthi and Paramathma Sorubham.

    He has performed Many miracles in my life and even to-day.

    I lost everything in my life but to-day i have earned much more than what i lost - All his divine Grace.
    I don't know how am going to repay all this to Swamy in what Way.


    So i don't differentiate Mukkur Swamy and Narshima are different - Both are one and same.

    I have tremendous confident that Swami will successfully complete this 108th Yagna very soon and we are all going to watch it.

    Appanae Mukkur Paramathma un Thiruvadigale saranam.

    Best Regards,

    Ramesh Seshadri

    1. Cent percent agree to what you have said.

      If not for Sri Mukkur Swamigal, his books/upanyasams, i would have been nothing.
      Whenever I visualize Lord Narasimhar, Lakshmi ma and mukkur Swamigal will automatically come to my mind.

      Just want to highlight one instance:-
      Sometime back, i suffered from prolonged cough.. None of the medicines helped.. It came on and off for 1 year...
      Then one day, i read somewhere that "whenever you drink water, imagine that its the water from your Guru's feet. Sri Paatha Theertham". miraculously my coughing stopped within 1-2 days of practicing it.

      He(MukkurSwamigal) is my only hope... He only can help me go closer towards Sri Lakshmi Narasimhar.

      I surrender fully to you appa, Sri Mukkur Swamigal.

      Mukkur Swamigal thirrupathangale saranam
      Mukkur Swamigal thirrupathangale Saranam

    1. What a wonderful place. dont know what to say about it .. Its a buloka Vaikundam.

  17. I am suffering with diabetes and it's allied problems like kidney infection etc.....i want to recite mantra raja patham.....can anybody gives the details about how to a make a sacred knot and sankalpa to Mattapaly swami ?

  18. Adiyen Mukundan from Hyderabad. Planning to go to pancha narasimha kshetrams by this month end. The comments and narrations are simple and so powerful.

    Nothing can stop in front of perumal and thayar karunyam. Only we need pure devotion.


  19. I'm going thro the worst phase of my life. With two kids on hand life has become impossible and I'm left helpless. But after reading the miracles of this temple, I have gained hope. I request lord nrisimha to hear my probs and save my family from this crisis and grant me his dash an in the near future. I request fellow devotees also to pray for my family. Om Namo Narasimha.

    1. dont worry dear sister / brother... for sure Sri Lakshmi Narasimha swamy will help you.... daily try to say some sloka of Sri Lakshmi Narasimha swamy like, Narasimha prapatti, Mattapalli Mangalashtakam or Sri Mantra Raja Patha Slokam.

      If you know Vishnu sahasranamam that is also a great cure for all problems.

      if you dont have time, just say "matha narasimha pitha narasimha" those 4 words would itself will give so much relief.
      or as Sri Mukkur Lakshmi Narasimhachariyar said.. 1 word is enough -- NARASIMHA

      i prayed for you too...

      with love & affection
      narasimha bakthai

    2. Sri Mattapalli natham Pradhosmi nityam namaha

      Lord Sri Mattapalli emberuman in an Aavirbhavam on Sri Mukkur Swami has told any one, has problems and that too even unsolvable has asked to come to Sri Mattapalli for a 11 days stay and have thrikaala snanam at River krishna and do a 32 times Pradakshinam. All your problems will be solved.
