The top of innermost sanctum of this temple has golden Sudarshana Chakra of Lord Vishnu. The adornment is about 3 feet by 3 feet in dimension and it is the symbol by which the temple is identified by from distance. A legend about the chakra says that many years ago, it moved in the direction from which the devotees came, rotation like compass which guided devotees to this temple.
In Trethayuga, there lived sage known as Yadarishi, son of the great sage Rushyashringa and Santa Devi who did penance inside cave with the blessings of Lord Anjaneya (Hanuman) on this hill between Bhongir (Bhuvanagiri) and Raigiri (Now in Nalgonda district of Telangana, India). Pleased with his deep devotion, Lord Narasimha, an incarnation of Lord Vishnu appeared before him in five different forms as Sri Jwala Narasimha, Sri Yogananda, Sri Gandaberunda, Sri Ugra Narasimha and Sri Lakshminarasimha. All these five forms (roopas) are presently worshipped within the temple. They later manifested themselves into finely sculpted forms which later came to be worshiped as Pancha Narasimha Kshethra.
There are Purana and traditional accounts of this Temple, which are widely popular among the devotees. There is mention about the origin of this temple in the Skanda Purana, one of the famous 18 Puranas. Another Legend also narrates that Lord Sriman Narayana, pleased with Sage Yadarishi’s penance, sent Lord Sri Anjaneya to direct the rishi to this holy spot, where the Lord appeared to him in the form of Sri Lakshmi Narasimha. This spot is marked by this temple located at the foot of Yadagiri hillock which is located 5 km from this present temple. There this sage worshipped the Lord for many years.
After Yadarishi attained moksha, number of tribes in this area, hearing of the Lord's presence, came to worship Him at this temple. But, not being very learned, these devotees began to engage in improper worship. Hence Lord Sri Lakshmi Narasimha moved into to the hills. The tribals searched for many years to find their Lord, no avail. After many years passed, the Lord appeared in the dream of devout lady among this tribe, directing her to large cavern wherein He revealed Himself to all in five majestic Avatars.
