YADAGIRI

There is also another legend, which has also got wide circulation, about this temple. According to this, at first the Lord manifested himself at a place two miles distant from this hill. That place is now called as the Old Narasimhaswamy temple site. After the above dream incident etc., which are common to this legend also, the God deserted that place and came to the present hill spot since the present spot was more conducive to concentration and meditation.

The temple is situated at the top of the hill, which is about 300 ft. in height. At the foot of the hill, there is a gateway with Gopuram, which is called popularly as "Vaikunta Dwaram". As one gets up half the way above one will find a number of choultry buildings, which have formed themselves into a hill town. There are about 150 such choultries constructed by many devotees of the Lord for the convenience of the pilgrims who visit the temple.
