Narasimha Jayanti Puja Muhurat – 25 May 2021

The depictions of the avatar of Narasimha are contained in all these Puranas. There are short reference related to this particular Lord in earliest of Vaishnav Upanishads, a Gopal Tapani Upanishad (Narasimha tapani Upanisad) and Mahabharat (3.272.56-60).

There is a good evidence in the form of stone sculpture from the Hoysaleswara Temple in place known as Halebidu, in the state of Karnataka that depict Vishnu as Narasimha kills demon named Hiranyakashipu.

In the Simhachalam temple (Andhra Pradesh), there is a Lord Narasimha rock statue in the backyard.

Yadagirigutta Narasimha Swamy Temple, Simhachalam Temple, Nachagiri Lakshmi Nrusimha Swamy Temple, Ahobilam Navanarasimha Swamy Kshetram, and many temples in Andhra Pradesh are the best places to visit during Narasimha Jayanti. Bidar Narsimha Swamy Temple is one of the popular Temples dedicated to Lord Narasimha in Karnataka.
