One of the Nava Narasimha Kshetras
Jul 2020
A beautiful temple located in a tranquil and pleasant valley. The main deity is Sri Penusila Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy, Chenchu Lakshmi and Adi Lakshmi. The kshetra palaka is Sri Anajeneya Swamy. The dieties are swayambhu (self-incarnated).

Penusila when translated means large stone, the temple was carved of a single large stone from the hill. The name Penchelakona also was a local transformation of Penusilakona to Penchalakona.

There is a waterfall near the temple, but when we visited in July there wasn't much water flowing so we avoided it.

The roads to the temple were decent and motor-able without much issues, we drove from Nellore.

A place where lord lakshmi narshima swamy is worshipped by many people in a belief that lord himself originated in that place. Hence, there are many beliefs that no insect can harm any person who worships god with pure heart.
