Vedadri - Narasimha Aalayam 

The legend goes to impress that the sacred Vedas took the form of hill to bear upon its head the Yogananda Narasimhaswamy -the presiding deity in this kshetra. And the sage Rishyasringa is said to have installed the icon in Tretayuga. This ancient kshetra lies on the bank of river Krishna and famous as the Pancha Narasimha kshetra. There are independent temples existing at different places. The Principal icon is called Yogananda Lakshmi Narasimhaswamy and reveals with four hand, the upper ones adorned with the disc and conch whereas the lower two holding. the Yogananda. There are two separate mandirs for Rajyalakshmidevi and Godadevi and they are elegantly built. It is in the same campus there is another shrine for lakshmi Narasimhaswamy, the second of the five dedicated to the Lord. The third one, an ant-hill is found on the top of the hill and is called Jwalanarasimhaswamy. The fourth one is said to be in the river Krishna in the salagram form and gives Darshan only when the river recedes backwards. The fifth one is found on the hill called Garudachalam, and it lies at a short distance to this. The deity is called by two names - Vugranarasimhaswamy and Viranarasimhaswamy. All these places are exercising great pull on the Narsimhopaskas in particular and theists in general. Vaikhanasa agama worship is offered in all the Panchanarasimha kshetras.
