The temple is located 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).
The deity Narasimha Swamy is embodied in Volcano mountain. The priests say that Idol sense 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, 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 Sandal, and devotees come from far from this Chandana Dhravam.
History of Malluru Narasimha Swamy Temple
The temple is from before the 6th century and has a history of 4776 years. The sage Agastya 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 hemachala Narasimha Swamy temple area is protected as a biodiversity zone of herbals by the State Government.
The temple is intentionally kept out of public sight to honour the sacredness untouched. Recently the priests unreeled 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.
