YADAGIRI

The legends are as follows: -

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.
