SIMHACHALAM

THE TRETAYUGA EPISODE

With the dawn of Tretayuga, this holy region was nothing but a primeval forest, when nature paraded its pristine glory and established its full sway making impenetrable to humans. During then Pururava, one of the renowned Shatchakravarthis happened to pass this way in his aerial chariot once, in the company of the lovely Urvaasi on a visit to down South. As the air-plane neared the precincts of the once great sanctum, it became motionless and found suspending in the mid-air itself. Struck with wonder and desired to finding out the cause, he descended with his celestial companion Urvasi. No sooner did she step on the soil, she at once remembered the splendid past of the kshetra. She then said, "This land, Your Majesty was the abode of Sri Mahavishnu, when the Mukkoti Devatas worshipped Sri Varahanarasimhaswamy with unprecedented ardour. And I also joined them to partake the merit of worshipping him. I guess by stopping of plane that somewhere in this area the archamurthi is hidden. Please make a search for it, and if installed and worshipped, sure mankind will be emancipated and you will become immortal. This act will definitely usher in the much-sought after Narasimhaposana cult and your longstanding desires too will be fulfilled soon."
