Ibhramapura is a small village near Mantralaya. Ask anyone in Mantralaya about directions to this holy spot and they will guide you. If you are confused, go on the road towards Mantralaya bus stand and continue onwards. This is the road to Adoni which is about 43 kms away from Mantralaya.
When you travel for some time, may be a couple of miles, you come to a small village on your left Ask the way for Ibhrampura. Beware, the road is bad and the ride bumpy. We took an Innova and it was difficult to negotiate the small road, which was full of huge craters and slush,
Ibhrampura is the home of one of the most famous of Raghavendra Swamy’s disciple called Ibrahampura Appa. He is believed to be an associate of Prahalada, the first avatar of Raghavendra Swamy. Even today, there is a belief that when Rayaru wants a change , he heads to Ibhrampura to have a talk with Appa.
Appa performed many miracles due to his proximity to Rayaru. He exuded such fragrance that  it preceded him.
Ibhrampura is the place where he lived,This is in Andhra Pradesh.
The photo will take you to the house of Appa. Unfortunately, since we had gone there on an Ekadashi, we could not see the interior where there is an idol of God. The sanctum had been locked up and we had to be content photographing the exterior.
So, here goes the photo story.
