Srimathe Ramanujaya Namaha 
Srimathe Nigamantha mahadesikaya Namaha 

Namaskaram, 
Adiyen along with my family, had been to mattapalli in A.P
to have a darshan of Lord Sri LakshmiNarasimhan on the 6th 
& 7th of may. It was a wonderful scintilating experience, 
more so, because 6th was Nrisimha jayanti day.

The temple is situated on the banks of river Krishna. The 
moolavar is Sri Yogananda Nrisimhan. Thayaar is Sri Rajyalakshmi.
Chenchulakshmi Thayaar is also present beside the moolavar.
The sanctum sanctorium is inside a cave which extends upto 
the river Krishnaveni. The vimanam here is Brahmananda nilaya
Vimanam.

To reach mattapalli, we have to reach Kodad by bus, either from 
Hyderabad(200kms) or Vijayawada(99kms). From Kodad, we have to 
come to Huzoornagar(15kms) by bus & from there we have to reach
Mattapalli by another bus. On reaching mattapalli, we heard
the unfortunate news of Sri MukkoorSwami'sreaching Paramapadam.

WE felt very sad as it was through his references to Sri Mattapalli
Nathan and his anubhavams with the Lord that we were inspired to
have a darshan of Sri Mattapalli Nathan.

Our homage to SriMukkoor Swamigal lies in following his teachings & seeking a darshan Sri Mattapalli Nathan whenever it is possible.
Weare sure he is now enjoying the seva of paramapada nathan & 
Periya Pratti.

Adiyen Ramanuja Dasan, 
Ramesh
