We took a direct bus from Nellore. It tooks us 3:30 hrs to reach Penchalakona due to the heavy rush, as we travelled on Narasimha Jayanthi. During the journey we got glimpses of Seshachalam forest on either side of the road. You need to travel further to see the actual Seshachalam forests and the red Sandalwood plantation. Since we did not have enough time, we skipped this part. Now, coming back to Penchalakona temple, it was an awesome experience to have visited the temple on Narasimha Jayanthi as Lord Narasimha is the mein deity at that place. In addition, there is some significance attached to this temple as mentioned in Youtube and other places. Scenary near the temple was noteworthy. Darshan of Lord Narasimha and Godess Lakshmi made us very happy.

If you are a devotee of Lord Narasimha Swamy, one should visit this temple. The transportation to this place is easy. There is a sense of calm and devotional atmosphere around the temple. If one prays sincerely and with utmost devotion, Narasimha Swamy will bless you. Jai Narasimha Swamy namah
