LORD NARASIMHA OF KARPARA KSHETRA

In the village Soorpali lying in the Jamkan diTaluk of Bijapur district of Karnataka, the image of Lord Narasimha is installed on the branches of a tree. Karnataka presents yet two more unique places, where the images of Narasimha are adored in an odd way, installing them in odder fashion, whose sthalapuranas though seem oddest have taken deep roots in the scriptures. In a village called Koppara, 90 miles from Gulbarga, Lord Narasimha is in the form, free - Viriksharupa Narasimha, but all kinds of prayer services are offered to it in the usual manner. The belief that the Lord is abiding here in that odd form is so deep and widespread that it turned the place a great pilgrimage centre since long. Theists visit and offer worship in addition to redeeming their vows, as it is done elsewhere in other places to several adorable deities. It is said that it is the only one of its kind in the whole of Bharat. Its uniqueness is drawing several thousands through out the year from far and near. And strangely enough the faith in the Lord seems on the increase, for the believed are relieved of their worries and cares. It is a visit-worthy place and the Lord being omni compassionate has never let down his adorers.
