Arulmigu Narasimma Swamy Temple

     Kudavarai Narasimhar: Sri Narasimmah is depicted with sharp nails used to kill Hiranya and the wonder is, the palm has stains of blood. There are Janaka, Sanadhanar, Sun, Moon and Brahmma around Him. As a Kudavarai Murthi, Tirumanjanam is not performed. It is performed to the procession deity only.

     The Lord is generally known as Sri Lakshmi Narasimha, if Mother Sri Lakshmi is on his lap. In this temple, Sri Mahalakshmi has Her place on the chest of the Lord. Sri Namagiri Thayar (Mother Lakshmi) has her shrine here facing east. It is believed that the devotee would become a pundit in mathematics if he/she worships Mahalakshmi. There is a separate temple for Bhakta Anjaneya who brought the Anjaneya Salagrama. The idol is 18 feet tall with a japamala in hand and a sword in the waist.

     While Sri Anjaneya was bathing in River Kandaki in Nepal, He got a stone named Salagrama in the shape of Lord Vishnu. He was carrying it through the sky and passed through this place. He had to take a bath but could not as the Salagrama should not be placed on Earth. He then just found Sri Mahalakshmi performing penance and enquired Her the reason. Mother told him that she wanted to see the Lord in Narasimha form and hence Her penance.

     Sri Anjaneya requested the Mother to hold the Salagrama till he returned after a bath. The Mother agreed on the condition that She would place it down if he did not return with a stipulated time. But Anjaneya could not come in time. Mother placed it down which Anjaneya could not move. The Salagrama grew into a mountain. Lord Narasimha appeared before the mother granting darshan and became Lakshmi Narasimha. Anjaneya also stayed here itself then.
