Saligrama-Yoganarasimha Devalaya

This ancient kshetra was once dominated by Jains, who made it one of the principal centers to carrying on their propoganda activities and commercial enterprises. 'There are many vestiges of their hectic activities here before the advent of Ramanuja. Ramanuja, the founder of Visishtadwaita vexed with religious persecution of the rulers of Chola Nadu settled down here for sometime, absorbing himself in the devotional activities of this Yaganarasimhaswamy temple. His contribution to the devotional cult gradually evolved here due to Iord's grace. And emanating spread its everlasting fragrance to the four corners of our punya Bharat. This kshetra has some more plus points that catapulted its glory immensely. In the temple campus there lies a tank called Sri Pada thirtha, the most sacred one to the Vaishnavates. It also contains his padukas getting adored with great fervour by all the visitors. This is fairly a big temple built in the Dravidian style of architecture. Immensity and sculptural speciality greet from every frame of this shrine. The archamurti's icon in meditation posture feasts the eyes. It is a masterly sculptured icon enchanting with its sheen and polish. There is a village once dominated by Bialtmins and was called Mithila nagara. And it was a great educational and cultural centre of immense reputation. There is another temple equally important in every respect going by the name of Kodandarama temple. Agamic worship is offered with great zeal. Due to the presence of Sri Vari padukas and Sripada thirtha, it is luring a steady influx of theists throughout the year.

It lies near Melkote, a famous pilgrim centre in Karnataka accessible by bus
