The deity Narasimha Swamy is embodied from Volcano mountain. The priests say that Idol here is sensed as 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. This is the specialty of the Hemachala Narasimha Swamy Temple.
