Ahobilam Temple Steps Information:

The Jwala Narasimha idol is quite overwhelming with the idol of 8 arms, 2 of them holding Hiranyakashipu on a lap and two arms tearing open its chest, two arms wearing the intestines as a Holy Garland, and the remaining two arms holding Shankha and Chakra. The local Chenchu tribe manages the temple to date as they treat the Lord as their “son-in-law”. The devotees are also allowed to offer meat to Jwala Narasimha Swamy every Saturday and co-incidentally we were there on Saturday. I would recommend spending some time here and exploring the backside of the temple to witness the view of the waterfall and soak in the beautiful Scapes and sounds.

There are around 450 Steps to reach Ahobilam temple in the Walkway for Devotees. IT takes around 3 hours to reach the temple. The footway is filled with waterfalls and the way is quite amazing with the water going through our feet. It is the earliest and the main temple among all the 9 Narasimha Swamy temples.  The experience is quite interesting and everyone must visit the temple. Narasimha Jayanthi festival is celebrated in a grand manner here.
