Alampur

Alampur is a village on the bank of the Tuṅgabhadrā River in the Mahaboobnagar district of Andhra Pradesh. The village is renowned for the Nava-Brahmā temples (also known as Svarga-Brahmā temples) built in the 7th century A. D. Some of them are located within the same prākāra (outer wall). All are in the vesara style, a combination of the nāgara and drāviḍa styles, though the former aspect is more prominent. They appear to be the prototypes of the temples developed fully at Aihoḷe and Bādāmi now situated in the Karnataka State.

Alampur has sometimes been called Dakṣiṇa Kāśī.
