Lord Narsimha

Temple History

This temple was constructed by Jat Sardars in the 18th century. The Khirwar clan of Jats came from Brij and founded Narsinghpur, where they ruled for many years. Khirwars of Narsinghpur were followers of Narasimha, and so constructed two temples dedicated to Narasimha Avatar.

The idol in this temple is rested on a pillar which is constructed in the temple's basement ( garbhgraha) which is a unique idol as it is placed in such a way that no matter from where it is seen, the view is the same.

Lord Narsimha is said to emerge from a pillar hence the temple was constructed keeping in the view the guidelines of the veda.
