Sights[edit]

It is believed Penna Ahobilam's Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy temple was built on the lord's 5' 3" footprint along the lush green Pennar Rivulet banks. A popular marriage location and annual site for the April car festival, this complex includes temples devoted to Adi Laxmi Devi and Chenchu Laxmi Devi. Within 100mts, leftward behind the temple, below Penna Nadidam Falls, sits a Mandapam (marriage hall) ensconced amid water pools fed by ancient stone ports. Narasimha Bugga (lit. water emanating from a Tree's roots) depicts where Narasima Swamy destroyed a defiant king and relates further history of Penna Ahobilam.
