Everything You Need To Know About The Famous Jogulamba temple In Mahbubnagar district!



Alampur is a temple-town situated in the border of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, in the district of Mahabubnagar, India. Alampur is the meeting point of the sacred rivers Tungabhadra and Krishna and is sometimes referred to as Dakshina Kashi. Also known as Navabrahmeshwara Theertha, the Sacredness of Alampur Temple is mentioned even in the Skanda Purana. The principal deities at Alampur are Brahmeshwara and Jogulamba.

In the 18 shakti peetams Goddess Jogulamba is considered as the 5th Shakti Peeta. Here Goddess Jogulamba is seen seated on the Corpse with a scorpion, frog, and lizard on her head. She is seen in a naked avtar with her tongue stretched outside, an avtar of fierce goddess that grants Siddhi in Yoga and hence called Jogulamba. This word is a changed form of Yogula Amma in Telugu which means Mother of Yogis!

The Navabrahma temples were built by the Badami Chalukyas, who ruled for about 200 years from the middle of the sixth century onwards. The Badami Chalukyas built several temples in Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh. The Alampur site preserves archeological remains in the form of temples exhibiting a hybrid style of architecture-dating back to the 6th-7th centuries.

Around 90,000 to 1 lakh devotees have been visiting Jogulamba temple during this Krishna Pushkaralu.
