Considered as one of the nine famous kshetras dedicated to Lord Narasimha, this temple is an exact replica of the
Narasimhaalaya built by Pallavas on the sea shore some centuries back. The original temple could not stand the constant
fury of the sea, and so it was ultimately swallowed by it en masse. Realising the Omni compassion of that Lord, some
philanthropists rebuilt it here at the earnest appeals of the bhaktakoti, whose parents received the munificence of the
archamurti of the original temple generations back. This lies at the confluence of river Godavari with Vasistha and hence
added sanctity. And craze for purificatory bath also. Some of the ardent devotees who could not visit either Ahobalam or
Simhachalam due to physical infirmity or full engagement in their avocations, pay visits to this kshetra and redeem vows
taken, equating it with those two kshetras. The Lord has a passion for genuine bhakti and succors any type of help, when
summoned. The hundi offerings are so huge that they enriched the temple enormously, and are being utilised for the welfare
schemes launched by the temple authorities. Daily puja is offered with great devotional zeal. And the annual function too.
It lies 10 km off Narasapur, a famous town in Godavari district of Andhra Pradesh, accessible by four wheelers.
