Sri Yoga Narasimha swamy temple is situated on the banks of river Hemavathy at Gorur, Hassan district.

Sage Gokarna performed penance on the banks of river Hemavathy about Lord Narasimha and Lord appeared as Sri Yoganarasimha in front of the sage on a stone. Since then the place was named as Gokarna kshetra after sage Gokarna.  

It is believed that the present deity statue is carved from the same stone on which the Lord appeared. The speciality of the place is, the lord faces west and the lord has three eyes.

Later on an ant hill grew on the lord after a long period. Then two brothers from southern Karnataka came along the Hemavathy river path, after reaching the Gokarna kshetra they found it as a suitable place to take rest. The next day morning they were astonished to see a cow milking on the anthill which was grown on the Lord. 

When they removed the ant hill they were surprised to see the divine statue of Sri Yoga Narasimha swamy. Then they cleaned the surrounding with the help of local people they built the temple for Sri Yoga Narasimha swamy. The brothers were Dodda Narasaiah and Chikka Narasaiah. Still today their family members observe special honours in the temple.

In earlier days Gorur was named as Shata Rudra Yaga Puri and in the later 16th century the temple was renovated along with the other temples of and named as Gorur.

  1. I had sent money for Abhisheka last July 2015 but the check was never encashed and the abhisheka not performed. I had called and spoken to Sri Srikanth several times and mailed it to the correct address from NY. Cannot contact them at all at the above phone numbers - Seetharaman U
