Mantralayam is a holy town situated 74 km from Kurnool district in Andhra Pradesh and 250 km from its state capital, Hyderabad. It is located near the border of Karnataka and on the banks of the river Tungabhadra. Mantralayam is known for Sri Guru Raghavendra Swami, a saint who entered into a samadhi alive in front of his disciples in 17th Century. He was a Madhwa saint who is considered to be a reincarnation of Prahlada (A daitya king who was saved by Lord Vishnu's Narasimha avatar).
The main attraction here is the Temple and Mutt "complex." The temple elephants and chariots carrying the deity around the temple on special occasions is a spectacular sight, while the Tungabhadra river is also worth seeing.

Beautifully carved temples.
Nothing much to see apart from the Raghavendra Swami Temple.
