Namakkal - Shri Narasimha Swamy Temple

Nammakal is famous for Anjaneya/Hanuman temple. Seldom many know that it was Narasimha who is opposite to the Hanuman temple who brought Hanuman here in the first place. During the Lanka war Hanuman took the Sanjeevi Parvatha to cure Lord Lakshmana. He then placed the Parvata back to the Himalayas and took a Saligramam (which was worshipped by Prahalada) back to Lord Rama. On his way to Lanka he stopped for a while to perform Sandhya and placed the Saligramam in Namakkal .. the Saligramam grew in stature as a hillock - Namagiri. Lordess Lakshmi who was doing penance finally got her Lord in the form of Narasimha. On Lord's advice Shri Anjaneya stays here worshipping Lord for ever. Beautiful temple - 1 hr drive from Salem. Lots of buses
