YADAGIRI

Yadavas then begged the Lord to show him the three supernal forms of the Lord, which had captivated his heart viz., the Swarup-is of Lord Vishnu as Jwala Narasimha, Gandabheranda Narasimha and Yogananda Narasimha. Accordingly, Lord Vishnu granted the boon, and gave darshan of the above three forms of the Narasimha Avatara to Yadavas. But Yadavas was still not fully satisfied with this fleeting view of the Lord, and the hunger in his soul required that he should constantly remain in the presence of the Lord himself. He, therefore, begged of the Lord to remain permanently in the hill in those three forms. The Lord, who was well pleased with the devotion of Yadavas, acceded to his request, and began to live there permanently on the hill in the above three forms of Lord Narasimha. Thus, the hill got its name as Yadavagiri, the corrupted form of which is Yadagiri.
