Yoga Narasimha Temple, Melkote

It was one good travel day today. I visited Melkote, 133kms from Bangalore, a sacred destination of Karnataka. The weather was good; roads were good and not so much of traffic too. This little village is located on the rocky hills known as Yadavgiri.

Shared below are photos of the temple of Yoganarasimha. The temple is dedicated to Lord Yoga Narasimha. It is believed that the image of Yoga Narasimha temple at Melkote was installed by Prahlada himself. More shots and stories will be posted soon.

    Our family deity (kuladeivam in Thamizh). My paternal grandfather was from Melkote. The roads… couldn't believe the roads when I went this year, used to be *terrible* when I was a kid. Decades ago that was! Looking forward to the promised post 🙂

  23. The detail and the depth and texture of this incredible temple blows my mind. It must have taken a very long time and many busy hands to create such a wonder.
