Sri Lakshminarasimha Swamy Yadagirigutta Temple History
Sri Lakshminarasimha Swamy Temple also Known as Yadadri Temple traces its history back to the Treta Yuga and is also known as ‘Pancha Narasimha Kshetram’. This is the place where Rishi Yadarishi meditated and did penance in a cave with the blessings of Hanuman Ji. Pleased, Lord Vishnu appeared before the Rishi in five forms. These are the five forms worshipped in the temple. This temple is mentioned in the Skanda Purana and other holy texts. The sanctum of the temple is located inside this cave.
