NARASIMHAVATARA KSHETRAS IN MAHARASTRA

Charthana - Narasimha Mandir

It is an ancient Narasimha Kshetra tracing its origin to a devout ruler called Charudatta. Later it was changed to Charthana, the present name for easy pronunciation most likely. Situated on the bank of a small river in the Parbhani district of Maharastra, this holy temple established its reputation in the past, and is one of the three famous shrines viz. Gopaleswar, Narasimha and Devi. It is built in the Hemadpanti architectural style patronised by the illustrious yadava rulers. It contains all the indispensable parts like garbhagaiha, antarala, mukhamandap, prakara, mahadwar etc. The temple faces west and has several niches for the parivaradevathas. In the mahamandap there arc six well built grand niches, but befitting images are conspicuous by their absence. Its ceiling is elaborately adorned with sculptural pieces and it boars striking resemblance to the famous temples built by yadavas at places like Raher, Omega, 1'angaon etc. A bizarre feature that greets the visitors is a gland Sivalinga in one of the chambers, declaring thereby that there is oneness between Hari and Hara. The polishing of the floor and walls are its additional plus points reflecting the builders refinement and liberal patronage, As it is well-maintained, it is luring a steady influx of devotees round the year and nityanaimithika prayer services are offered with due devotion. 

It lies in the Jintoor taluq of Parbhani district of Maharastra and enjoying transport facilities from many nearby towns.
