The temple complex at Upper Ahobilam is in the Kurnool district of Andhra Pradesh, India. It is located about 8 kilometres (5 mi) east of Lower Ahobilam and about 15 kilometres (9 mi) from Allagadda. The main temple here was built by Krishnadevaraya, the emperor of Vijayanagara Empire in 1515 CE. The site has nine temples dedicated to Narasimha, an avatar or incarnation of Vishnu; all are within a distance less than one kilometre from each other and are connected by stone-paved pathways through forested hillsides with many waterfalls along them. They were designated as a protected monument on 10 December 1958 as per Ancient Monuments Protection Act 1904. The major attraction for visitors to this place are these 9 temples dedicated to Lord Narasimha Swamy which have been carved out into rocks amidst thick forests and beautiful surroundings making it ideal for nature lovers who want peace & solitude away from city life but still want comfort facilities like good hotels etc.
