Vijayawada is a famous tourist destination in Andhra Pradesh known for its temples, caves, forts and parks. Situated around 12 km from Vijayawada is the famous town of Mangalagiri widely visited by tourists thronging the city of Vijayawada. Mangalagiri means ‘Auspicious Hill’ and is known as one of the eight Mahakshethrams (sacred places) in India where Lord Vishnu manifested himself. Mangalagiri hill is in the shape of an elephant and according to the legends there is a story behind it. Hrasva Srungi, the son of King Pariyatra visited the place of Mangalagiri and took the shape of an elephant at the request of the Gods to become the abode of Lord Vishnu, locally known as Panakala Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy.

Mangalagiri is a famous pilgrim center known for its three temples of Narasimha Swamy - Panakala Narasimha Swamy on the hill, Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy at the foot of the hill and Gandala Narasimha Swamy on the top of the hill. The Panakala Narasimha Swamy temple does not have a statue of the God but a mouth covered by metal face of the God. Here jaggery water is offered to the Lord by the devotees visiting the temple. At the foot of the hill, there is a temple dedicated to Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy. The main deity in this temple is believed to be installed by Yudhisthira, the eldest of the Pandavas. This temple has one of the highest gopurams in the entire South India constructed by Raja Vasireddy Venkatadri Naidu. On the top of the hill is the Gandalayam where there is no deity of the God. Here devotees light a lamp with Ghee and believe that they will get rid of their miseries.

A place of great religious importance, Mangalagiri is one of the top attractions of Vijayawada. The three legendary temples and the lush green surroundings attract visitors to this auspicious place in huge numbers. Ksheera vruksham is another major attraction on the Mangalagiri hill visited particularly by women. Thousands of women visit this tree throughout the year and pray for begetting children. Mangalagiri is known not only for its temples and natural beauty but also for handloom dress materials produced here. Mangalagiri cotton is quite famous in Andhra Pradesh. A place of legendary temples, handloom materials and beautiful surroundings, Mangalagiri is definitely one of the must visit tourist destinations in Vijayawada.
