SIMHACHALAM

The Puranic legend of the temple takes Prahlad and us to the time  Hiranyakasipu who are famous figures in Indian mythology. It is said that Hiranyakasipu, the king of the Rakshasas, in order to punish his son Prahlada, who, was firm in his devotion to the Lord, threw his son into the sea, and then placed the Simhachalam hill over his head in order to crush him completely. Prahlada was a great Bhakta of Lord Narayana. Lord Narayana in his aspect of Narasimha who went to the rescue of Prahlada, stood by the side of the hill and tilted it up a bit so that Prahlada. May escape from the bottom of the hill. Later on, in memory of the incident, Prahlada is said to have founded this shrine.
