Alampur Jogulamba Devi Temple in the Gadwal district is a renowned 18 Shakti Peethas of India, situated at the confluence of two holy Hindu rivers – Krishna and Tungabhadra. One can visit this incredible temple for its picturesque surroundings and to witness spiritual devotion. Telangana’s Alampur Jogulamba Devi Temple has become an increasingly sought-after tourism destination!

Just a mere 28 kilometers away from Kurnool City lies the sacred town of Alampur, where it is believed that Devi’s upper jaw with tooth fell. This spiritual place is known to devotees as Dakshina Kailasam (Dakshina Kasi) or Sangama Kshetram and can be found in the state of Telangana, India – home to many ancient temples including the renowned Alampur temple.

The Alampur Jogulamba temple, a wondrous architectural marvel with its surrounding Nallamala hills, dates back to the 6th century. Distinguished as the Shakti of Bala Brahmeswara Swamy and also known as Gruha Chandi, Goddess Alampur Jogulamba is situated in a sitting posture adorned by Lizard, Skull, Bat and Scorpion during Puja Aarti. Unfortunately this ancient Hindu site was destroyed due to Muslim invasions in 14th century until recently it was reconstructed and renovated in 2005; thus restoring its regal glory for all to behold!

The Alampur Temple boasts two unparalleled deities, Jogulamba and Brahmeshwara. Located on the left bank of Tungabhadra River, this temple town is a site not to be missed.
