NARASIMHAVATARA KSHETRAS IN TAMIL NADU

Namakkal - Narasimha Temple

Namakkal is blessed with two powerful ancient temples dedicated to the mighty gods - Narasimha and Anjaneya, whose attributes Asritajanaparijata won for them several devotees; and the numerical might of whom is known to those mightiest gods alone. Both demonstrated their mighty might to such spectacular degree, that none exceeded them in those miraculous feats. Did any celestial divinity rush to the spot of devotee with a mere call as that of Narasimha? Did any devotee exhibit such stupendous feat of crossing ocean as that of Hanuma? And these two august gods are worshipped in this upcoming town with unparalleled devotional zeal. And moreover. they are enshrined in two separate independent temples - one atop the hillock and another in the busy commercial area. The Narasimha temple is built in the Dravidian style of architecture and is richly endowed by rulers and devotees. As the presiding deity is known for quick and easy accessibility, devotees hasten their steps, whenever anything posing a problem stands in their onward march. The Lord never let down any ardent bhakta and he is granting boons disproportionate to the devotion exhibited at it, as a matter of fact. Hence popularity. The temple houses Nainagiri Tayar Sannidhi inside the prakara who is more popular than the Moolavar. She is renowned as Varaprasadini and never sees tears trickling down the cheeks of her bhaktas. Both the deities seem vying with each other in fulfilling the desires of the adorers. 

Atop the hill lies the Hanuman temple, though small in dimension, its archamurti is extremely tall measuring twenty five feet in height. Perhaps to justify his immense height, he readily comes to the succor of the devotees. In showering boons, he never lags behind either Narasi4a, nor the Tayar. Is it due to proximity of those highest deities? Whatever might be the cause, the adorers are returning home with smiles wreathing their faces as a mark of contentment. Daily prayer is offered at both the temples with due rituals and annual festivals with great eclat.

It is in the Namakkal town of Tamilnadu on Salem-Trichy highway and very near to Salem, accessible by four wheelers.
