SIMHACHALAM

Lord Narayana took on the incarnation in the aspect of Lord Narasimha in order that he may kill Hiranyakasipu without violating the many boons that Hiranya had obtained from various other gods by the power of has Tapascharya. Even after the destruction of Hiranyakasipu, the fury of the Lord did not abate, and this caused trouble and fear to all the Devas. Thereupon Lord Siva assumed the shape of a bird or Sarabha and pacified Lord Narasimha. The consecration of this image of the Lord in this form is said to destroy enemies, secure success in battles, cure all ailments, and procure every good.
