Ahobilam Nava Narasimhar Temple - Kaaranja Narasimha Swamy

Kranja Narasimha Swamy, Ahobilam

  • Kranja Narasimhar Swamy Temple is situated at a distance of one kilometer from the Upper Ahobilam.
  • Kranja Narasimhar is seen under a tree, called 'Karanja Vruksham' and hence this Narasimhar is called Karanja Narasimha Swamy.
  • Hanuman did penance at this place, to see his favorite Lord Rama in Ahobilam. But the Lord appeared as Narasimhar. Hanuman requested him to give darshan as Rama. So Narasimhar gave darshan along with bow and arrow with the Adhisheshan as umbrella (to show that he is MahaVishnu). Lord Hanuman appears in a separate shrine facing Narasimhar with worshiping pose.
