Considered as second Tirupathi in sanctity and popularity, the Yadagiri kshetra has etched an indelible name on the pages of history of temples of our sacred IND. The holy shrine going by the name of Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Devalayam is built on a little lovely 300-foot-high hill called Yadagirigutta. Skandapurana embodies elaborate account of the origin of this shrine. Though the construction of the shrine is attributed to one of the commanders of Krishna Devaraya, there is no epigraphic proof, yet it bears semblance to Vijayanagara temple models. It is also called Panchanarasimhakshetra, due to the fact of the archamurti's infinite compassion of giving darsan in three forms- Yogananda Narasimha, Jwala Narasimha and Gandabherunda Narasimha to Yadarshi, as desired. Besides these three distinct forms, the Principal deity embodies in himself tow more forms of Lakshmi Narasimha and Ugra Narasimha. Hence this kshetra is reverentially called Pancha Narasimha kshetra. The deity is Swaymabhu-self born. Needless to say its sacredness is million fold greater comparatively. According to legend, Yadarshi, the son of Rishyasringa and Santadevi did long penance for the darsan of the Lords' three forms in one. Contented with his tapas, the Lord appeared, and blessed as wished.
