  1. There were spelling errors mentioned in the places in Andhra Pradesh. Simhachalam Temple is near VISAKHAPATNAM (16 KM); YADAGIRI GUTTA near Hyderabad (62 KM) is geographically now in TELANGANA State; AHOBILAM is near Kadapa (110 KM) or Nandyala (62 KM) in Andhra Pradesh and KADIRI is near Kadapa (110 KM) in Andhra Pradesh
