Malluru Narasimha Swamy Temple is also called Hemachala Narasimha Swamy Temple. The temple is at Mallur, Mangapet Mandal, Warangal district. The Narasimha Swamy temple timings are from 8 am to 5 pm. The temple is 1,500 feet above sea level on Puttakonda (hillock) in the forest. There is a Hanuman temple on the way to the hillock called Shikanjaneya. There is a saying that Shikanjaneya is the ruler of the Mallur field (Kshetrapalaka). One needs to climb around 120-150 steps to the temple from the base of the hill.
The deity Narasimha Swamy is embodied in Volcano Mountain. The priests say that Idol is the human body with hair on the chest. If we touch the chest of the Idol with the forefinger, we can see the finger sinking into the rock without resistance.
If we remove the finger, we can find the trench formed due to pressing and leaving the impression on the chest, and it is the speciality of the Hemachala Temple.
The Idol is 9.2 feet tall and produces water from the naval, which serves as theertham for the devotees. Devotees believe that the water rescues them from sins and diseases.
The water flowing from the naval of the Maha Vishnu consists of sandals, and devotees come from far from this Chandana Dhravam.

The temple is from before the 6th century and has a history of 4776 years. The sage Agastya has named the hillock Hemachala. People say that demon king Ravana gifted this place to his sister Shurpanaka. This place is where Lord Rama killed nearly 14,000 demons led by Khara Dushana.
The water originates from the feet of the Lord as Koneru. Rani Rudrama Devi named the stream Chintamani Jalapatham. The state government protects the hemachala Narasimha Swamy temple area as a biodiversity zone of herbals.
The temple is intentionally kept out of public sight to honour its new sacredness. Recently, the priests broke the laws of their ancestors and bought the temple under the Endowments Department. The temple was renovated in the year 2003 during the Godavari Pushkar.
