LORD NARASIMHA OF KARPARA KSHETRA

Yet there is another place in the same Karnataka state, where a pipal tree is adored as Lord's image, which embodied several Saligrams and from which Lord Narasimha appeared. It is a swayamvyakta image and it has a long story. Skanda purna embodies a detailed account of this thirtha kshetra, situated on the banks of river Krishna in the Devadurga taluk of Raichur District. It has many other interesting plus points that won a covetable place in history too. It is here the Lord was found in a big hollow of a pipal tree, considered as garbha griha; it is this presiding deity appearing in a dream to the Muslim ruler, Adilshah got a temple built for himself; it is about this kshetra Narada grew eloquent in his narration about river Krishna; it is to this sacred place Brahma and Eswara along with gods descended to worship the Lord in the form of water, during the Karkataka sankramana every year; it is here the renowned sage Karpara did penance and obtained daiva sakshatkara; it is this holy pilgrimage centre that is visited by all castes and religions; and it is to this holy place Lord Balaji directed a certain devotee to visit it first and adore him next. Renowned for such special features, this thirtha kshetra has occupied a special niche in the history of temples of our punya Bharat.
