Description about the temple
Sri.Nadi Narasimha temple is unique to its kind, apart from Sri.Gunja Narasimha temple in Tirumakudal Narasipura, this is one temple which I found situated on the banks of a river.
The temple is belived to be 1000 years old, but looking at the structure, one feel it is renovated some 200 - 300 years back. While taking the pradakshina around the temple, one has to notice the image of Hanuman who is seated in meditation posture is worth watching along with other Dasha Avathara of Vishnu.
Just opposite to the temple, you can find a small valley, which might be a third order stream for the river Shimsha which flows then joins river Cauvery later.
