Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhara Rao attended the Maha Kumbha Samprokshana ceremony that was held on March 28 at Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy temple in Yadadri, in the Bhuvanagiri district.


It is well-known that the temple happens to be a project close to the heart of CM KCR, which has taken a personal interest over the years in developing Yadadri into a temple destination. The architectural masterpiece designed by Ananda Sai was constructed with 2,50,000 tonnes of black granite. In fact, the temple always existed in what was earlier known as Yadagiri Gutta.


But the reconstruction of the temple began in 2016 at the cost of Rs 1280 crore and was executed by the Yadadri Temple Development Authority (YTDA). The work included the efforts of 2000 sculptors and several workers who worked day and night to complete the project, though some works are still pending.


Elaborate arrangements were made by the officials for the Maha Kumbha Samprokshanam ceremony. The authorities were briefed regarding the huge numbers of devotees that would throng the temple complex for the official inauguration ceremony. The CM himself attended with his entire family for the auspicious occasion.


Meanwhile, the temple management has set up an automated and mechanized prasadam production unit atop the hill. It was announced that devotees visiting the temple would get unlimited laddu, pulihora, and vada prasadam.


According to ancient lore in Skanda Purana, Yada Maharshi, son of Maharshi Rishyasringa, performed penance here to Lord Vishnu. Please with him, the Lord appeared to him in five forms – Jwaala Narasimha, Gandabheranda Narasimha, Yogananda Narasimha, Ugra Narasimha and Lakshmi Narasimha.


Hence, the temple has all five forms embedded in stone in the main cave. The architecture of the present temple is based on Agama Sastra. The stone designs in Yadadri were provided by the chief sthapathi of the temple, Soundara Rajan. Three types of stones were used for the temple like Krishna Sila for sanctum sanctorum, Sthri Sila for deities of goddesses, and Napunsaka Sthila for flooring, walls, etc.
