Yadagirigutta temple history

Yadarishi, son of the renowned sage Rishyasrunga and Santa Devi, lived in Tretayugam and practised penance inside a cave with the blessings of Anjaneya (Hanuman) on this hill between Bhongir (Bhuvanagiri) and Raigiri.

Lord Narasimha, an incarnation of Lord Vishnu, appeared before him in five different forms as Jwala, Yogananda, Gandabherunda, Ugra, and Lakshmi Narasimha, pleased with his sincere devotion. They later materialised as magnificently sculpted forms known as Pancha Narasimha Kshetram, and were worshipped as such.

Puranas and traditional stories of this Shrine are well-known among believers. The origin of this temple is mentioned in the Skanda Purana, one of the famous 18 puranas.

The golden Sudarshana Chakra (about 3 ft x 3 ft) of Lord Vishnu shines brightly atop the sikharam of garbha griha (sanctum sanctorum) of this cave shrine (whose reincarnation is Lord Narasimha).

The temple, as well as the weapon, may be seen from a distance of up to 6 kilometres. It is stated that many years ago, the chakra moved in the direction of the worshippers, directing them to the temple like a compass.

Sages are thought to have worshipped Lord Narasimha (rishis). The Yadagirigutta location is said to be a “Rishi Aradhana Kshetram,” or sanctuary of sage worship.

According to legend, Lord Narasimha has assumed the position of “doctor” and is referred to as “Vaidya Narasimha” by his followers at this shrine, curing numerous chronic diseases and acting as a “provider of good things” to those who are afflicted by bad planets, witchcraft, and black magic.

Instabnces of the Lord appearing in devotees’ dreams, administering medications, operating on patients, and rewarding them with good health are mentioned.

Many devotees have extraordinary dreams in which the Lord appeared to them and healed them of chronic or deadly illnesses, as well as mental and emotional issues.

Many devotees do a mandala (40-day) pradakshina in order to be cured of chronic ailments or diseases. According to mythology, the Lord often bestows mantropadesham on a chosen few believers in their dreams.

Shriman Narayana, pleased with Yada’s penance, dispatched Shri Anjaneya to guide the rishi to a holy location, where the Lord came to him in the shape of Shri Lakshmi Narasimha, according to another legend.

This location is commemorated by a temple at the foot of the Yadagiri mountain, some 5 kilometres from the current temple. For many years, the sage worshipped the Lord there.

Hearing of the Lord’s presence after Yadarishi gained moksha, a lot of tribals gathered to worship him at this temple.

Due to their lack of knowledge, these devotees began to engage in improper devotion, and Shri LakshmiNarasimha relocated to the hills.

The tribals looked for their Lord for many years. After many years, the Lord appeared to a devoted lady in the tribe in her dream, directing her to a big cave where he revealed himself to all in five majestic forms. As a result, the temple is known as “Pancha Narasimha kshetram” (Pancha – Five)

The Pancharatra Agamam is used to perform the poojas in this temple. Late Shri Vangeepuram Narasimhacharyulu, who composed Yadagiri Suprabhatam, Prapatti, Stotram, Mangalashasanam and served as Sthanacharya of this temple, established the pooja vidhanam (pooja method).
