Story of the Temple

Legend associated with the origin of Shri Laxmi Narasimha Temple :
Laxmi Narasimha Bhagwan is the depiction of the fourth and most fearsome Avatar of Shri Maha Vishnu i.e. Lord Narasimha along with his eternal consort Maha Laxmi Devi.
Lord Vishnu took the form of Narasimha and came to Prithvi to protect his Bhakt Prahalad from his father Hiranakashyap who was a nonbeliever and an unkind king towards his subjects.
The meaning of the word Narasimha is a combination of man and lion. Lord Vishnu took the Narasimha form to complete a specific mission which had lasted only for a small duration.
Through the Narasimha Avatar, Lord Vishnu established righteousness back on the Earth and the message was established that those who obtain the Sanidhya of Narasimha Bhagavan don't lose any battles in life.
The Kurma Purana mentions the battle between humans and Anuradha (Prahalad's brother) who had an army of lacs of demons and was eventually defeated by a person who were half man and half lion.
The Shiv Purana mentions that Lord Shiva had to take the Veer Bhadra swaroop to pacify the world from the violent damage and destruction that was caused by Narasimha.
Lord Laxmi Narasimha's presence together is considered rare and boon showering for the devotees as the calm and fierce avatar of both deities present together provides the right balance in devotion to those who pray to him.
