|The legends are as
In the Tretayuga, there was a Rishi by
name Vibhandaka. His son was the famous Rishyasringa, who had a son by name Yadavas. From
the childhood onwards, Yadavas was devoted to Lord Vishnu and was'hungering to have a
darshan of the 'sakshatkara' of Lord Vishnu, in his Swarupa of Lord Narasimha. In order to
achieve and realize his heart's desire, he selected this secluded hill for doing his
penance. There is a tradition in our country, that secluded spots unvisited by men are
particularly susceptible of inducing great peace and concentration since there will not be
the impact of the vibrations of the human mind in these lonely and sacred places.
Yadagiri-gutta is one such secluded place and Yadavas was carrying on his penance or
Tapascharya with one-pointedness of mind, and with complete Ekagrata with a desire to have
darshan of Lord Vishnu as Narasimha. Lord Vishnu was pleased with the intensity, patience
and perfectness of his penance, and appeared before Yadavas to confer boons on him.
