The beautiful rock cut temple, and the deity is Lord Narasimha also carved out of a single rock in the small hillock. Here the Lord is known as Sri Paatalaadri Narasimhar. The deity has three eyes where it is shown during aarthi. There is a separate shrine for Goddess Lakshmi called Ahobila Valli.

According to sources, the temple has been referred in Brahmaanda Puranaam. Lord Vishnu in Narasimha Avataar killed demon King HiranyaKashipu.

When we circumambulate around the temple, actually we go round the small hillock as Gir Pradhakshina.
