Yatra In and Around Mantralaya

In Manthralaya:

Sri Venkateshwara Swamy Devasthana in Manthralaya

Sri Rayaru installed with his own hands the idol of Lord Venkateswara at Manchali and used to worship Sri Venkateshwara swamy every day before entering brindavana


We can find the temple of Lord Venkateswara about one km from Manchalamma temple, near the house of Archaka (priest) of Moola Brindavana.


It is the place from which The Stone taken from here(The stone on which Sri Rama devaru sat) used to  build Brindavana

One piece of the stone was left behind at Madhavaram, at the spot where it had been located to show the significance of the location and the event.

Manchalamma Temple:

This area came under Siddi Masud Khan of   Adoni. Venkanna was the Deewan of Adoni province and he was a devotee of Rayaru.

Rayaru told Venkanna that he wanted to enter Brindavana at Mantralaya as this was the place where he as Prahalada(Earlier birth)had done penance. Rayaru then sought permission from Goddess Manchalamma for constructing his brindavana.

The Goddess accepted. She appeared before Rayaru and claimed that this place would be so well-known that devotees would only flock to his temple and not other temple. 

Rayaru then told the Goddess that he would bless devotes only if they visit her first and then had his darshan. Even today, this holds true and devotes are expected to see the Manchalamma first and then enter the abode of Rayaru.

Panchamukhi ( Sri Pranadevara Sannidhi) (24km)

It is situated in the village Gandhal, Karnataka. It comes under Raichur district. It is just half an hour travel from Manthralaya. Lots of autos run from Manthralaya frequently.

Cave- Sri Rayaru performed meditation

The cave in which Sri Rayaru – as Guru Raghavendra – performed tapas for twelve years is on the top of a hillock.

After finishing his pooja of Rama at the cave temple, Guru Raghavendra used to sit for medidation. While on meditation at this cave he had carved the figures of Lord Venkateswara and Sri Lakshmi on the rock. The tapas continued for twelve years.

The darshan that Guru Raghavendra had of Sri Hanuman was when Sri Hanuman was a pancha mukhi. This place has now been named Panchamukhi Kshetra

Legand of Panchamukha Hanuman

Ravana requested his step brother Mahiravana, the king of Pathala Loka, to help him in the war. Mahiravana came in the disguise of Vibishana to Hanumantha who was guarding Sri Rama and Lakshmana. He made Hanuman believe that he is Vibishana and took charge of protecting Sri Rama and Lakshmana from Ravana the mayavi.

Mahiravana in the form of Vibeeshana took Lord Ram and Lakshman to his kingdom,pathala. When the real Vibishana came, every one understood that it was the handiwork of Mahiravana. The task of bringing back Sri Rama and Lakshmana was entrusted to Sri Hanuman.


Sri Hanuman entered pathala in search of Rama and Lakshmana. As per the advice of Sri Vibishana, Mahiravana could be killed only by blowing off the five lamps that are lit at his place of worship.

All the lamps were to be blown off simultaneously. Sri Hanuman prayed to Sri Rama and then on reckoning that if he had to blow all the five lamps at the same time he needs to have five mouths to blow from. He then assumed a form with five faces – pancha mukhi –  (Varaha facing north,  Narasimha facing south, Garuda in the west, Hayagriva facing sky and Hanuman in the east) and blew all the lamps simultaneously, and then killed Mahiravana.

Very near to the temple There is a Mrithika brindhavana of Raghavendra Swamy

The temple environment is serene and greenery.


 Once Srimushnam Ariachar was residing at Thirukkambuliur, about 7 km from Chinthalavadi  towards karur. One day Sri Narasimha appeared in his dream and told him, that in the Cauvery shore at Karuppathur,  a laundry man is washing clothes on the back of his sculpture,and asked him   to bring and install it. As directed Aachar went to Karuppathur.To his surprise the laundrymen also had a dream, Sri Narasimha devaru was asking him to handover the stone to Ariayachar. Ariachar carried the stone towards thirukkambuliur.

When he reached Chinthalavadi the stone was weighing too much and   he could not carry it further anymore.

At Chinthalavadi, Vyasarayaru had already installed Mukhyaprana devaru.  Ariachar and others went and consulted Vyasarayaru and he instructed them to install Sri Narasimha at chinthalavadi itself. Aftertwards Vyasarayaru came to Chinthalavadi for darshan of Yoga Narasimha and installed SriGopalakrishna also.

People from various parts of India visit yoga Narasimha swamy every year and he is the family deity for thousands of Madhwa community all over India
