Temple History:

   The object of Narasimha incarnation of Lord Vishnu was to destroy the Demon Hiranya. The demon had such a boon that he could not be killed by any power, any time, any weapon etc. Using the loopholes in his boon, Lord Vishnu took the Narasimha form (human body with a lion?s face) and destroyed him. The Lord was too furious then that nobody could go near Him. Mother Mahalakshmi sat on his lap and the Lord became calm and graceful. Based on this truth, in all Narasimha temples, Sri Mahalakshmi is seen sitting on the lap of the Lord. In this temple, Sri Mahalakshmi is in a separate shrine while Lord Narasimha is in another shrine. This is a very rare form in a Narasimha temple.
