Description
The Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy Temple resides in the much revered temple town of Antarvedi, belonging to the Sakhinetipalle Mandal. This temple is based in the East Godavari district of Andhra Pradesh. It is located at the cusp created by the Bay of Bengal and Vashista Godavari, a tribute of the Godavari River. The presiding deity of the temple is the God Narasimha, who lives here alongside his consort, Goddess Rajya lakshmi. Though the town being usually quiet, the thousands that flock to it during the main rituals of this temple makes it truly overwhelming.
History
The temple was built amidst the 15th and 16th century. There also lies a temple of Lord Siva that dates back several years before the Narasimha Swamy temple. It is celebrated that the idol of lord Shiva in that temple has been installed by no other than the great Lord Sri Rama. The Peddapuram Rajas of the 18th Century were entrusted with the responsibility of maintaining the temple. The Rajas of Mogaltur are considered to be the traditional trustees of the Antarvedi Temple, considering this phase of responsibility initiated in the 19th century. The deceased Shri Raja Kalidindi is also credited to have a lot contributed to the temple. He was known to be the former chairperson of the temple and by the virtue of hierarchy, a trustee. The credits for the temple as we see it today goes to Sri Kopanathi Adi Narayana, an influential business person.
Importance/Significance
In total, there are five significant places of this holy temple. These are the Sea, Sagar Sangam, Vasishta River, Raktakulya River and the Chakrateertham. The Hindu dharma firmly believes in the idea of 'Karma' and subsequent rebirth. In that regard, it is considered that no re-incarnation takes place if an individual takes a dip in the temple and offers charity.
Facts/Mythology
The presiding deity and temple as a whole were offered several priceless jewels by the kings of the yore, several noble men and also the East India Company itself. The jewels obtained by the temple have been hidden away by its treasury department for the past 50 60 years. However, due to tremendous efforts by the local authorities, the centuries old ornaments that belonged to gods are in the process of returning back to them. This is why the deities are seen decorated during festivals.
Festivals/Events/Gatherings
The religious fair of the locality is conducted during Bheeshma Ekadasi. The yearly Kalyanotsavam initiates on the day of Ratha Saptami and comes to an end on Pournami. This festival is said to have lakhs of individuals to this usually under populated village. The kalyanam of the Lord Narasimha Swamy is celebrated during Dasami and the subsequent Rathyatra is carried on about during 'Ekadasi day'. Several thousands flock to the village to witness the celestial wedding of the Lord with the goddess Lakshmi in the Lakshmi Narasimha Swami temple. It generally occurs on a 'Guruvaar' night. The Maha Shanthi Homam is in the morning. One of the chief rituals conducted before Kalyanam is Mudrika alankaram.
