He immediately promulgated an order that He alone should be worshipped as supreme God and brought every one and everything under his control.? But his own son disagreed with his father, violated the rule and worshipped only Lord Narayana.? Hiranya used all forces to correct his son but in vain.? The final confrontation took place at the dusk time, neither day nor night.? He demanded his son to show him his Narayana.? Lord appeared from a pillar with a human body and Lion face, kept him on His lap, used the nails as weapon, tore Hiranya and killed him.? He is the presiding deity of this temple.
