ஆடி ஆடி அகம் கரைந்து, இசை
பாடி பாடி கண்ணீர் மல்கி, எங்கும்
நாடி நாடி நரசிங்காவென்று
வாடி வாடி இவ்வாணுதலே.

Sri Ugra Narasimha of Shree Venkataramana Temple, Mulky
Mulki, a village situated on the banks of the holy river Shambhavi, has popularity bellying its small size. Shri Venkataramana Temple belonging to the Gowd Saraswath Brahmin Community shines like a jewel in the crown and has brought fame and glory to Mulki.
Shri Venkataramana – God of Prosperity, Shri Ugra Narasimha – Annihilator of fright and misfortune, Shri Bindu Madhav – God of Grandeur – thus Shree Venkataramana Temple is the sacred place of confluence of these three dieties – a Triveni Sangam in all respects.
Besides these three on the Simhasana are :
Two Vittala Idols – one belonging to Vatsa Gotra and another to Atri Gotra. These are on either side of Shri Ugra Narasimha on the central peetha of the Simhasan.
