Saturday 23rd April 2016 being Swathi day and after a lot of invitations and guidance from the temple committee member (Shri. Krishna Prasad), i had the opportunity to visit Abhaya Hastha Swayambhu Sri Lakshmi Narasimha swamy temple. The temple timings are are as below:
- Forenoon 7 AM to 1 PM
- Afternoon 4.30 PM to 7 PM
And hence I started from Koramangala around 8 AM to Attibele. Till Attibele I have monthly BMTC bus pass to take care of the journey. From Attibele to Hosur I took the TNSTC (Salem) bus. I remembered Prasad’s advice to go back the Hosur bus stand where we can get local town buses. Exactly there was a bus to Agaram Sri Balamurugan Koil which is the bus stop for this temple also. The journey took around 45 minutes along the Dharmapuri Rayakottai road. After reaching Dharmapuri at 11 AM had the darshan of the Lord. Prasad told me that the temple needs to be circumambulated 36 times. They had done the same thing as per their Gurujis’ guidance and the temple tank was brimming with sweet water at lesser depth.
After having Ven Pongal Prasadam, started from the temple back around 1 PM. The bus stop does not cater to express services. So be prepared to wait for a while for ordinary buses. Or if you are lucky you can get an auto to Udhanapalli (3 KMS still away) and get the express bus from there. After reaching Hosur caught a bus to Attibele and back home by 3 pM.
