The Vadapalli Lakshmi Narasimhar temple is situated in Nalgonda district near the town of Miryalaguda, at the confluence of the River Krishna and Musi River. These two rivers very unusually come together in the shape of an "L". This is one of the Panchanarasimhar kshetram.
About The Temple
This spot is arranged around 20 kms from Miryalaguda station which is on Hyderabad to Chennai by means of Nalgonda. The spot has a place with Nalgonda locale of Andhra Pradesh. Purana says 6000 years back Agyasthya muni brought the Siva Kesava symbols and he needed to introduce them. He was going through all Lokas lastly he arrived in Bholokaham, as he was heading towards Kasi kshetram, he heard akasa vani saying that Lord Narashima needed to be introduced at this spot where sangamam of River Krishna and River musi. Agyastayar introduced and developed a sanctuary for Lord Narashimar. As the years went there was part of changes and the sanctuary was not taken consideration and the primary god was secured by ant colony. Amid twelfth century Reddy Kings built up their city and around then they found the divinity of Narashimar and they’re developed the sanctuary and introduced the fundamental god. This is the first of the five Narasimha sthalas in Andhra Pradesh. The symbols of Lord Sri Rama, Mother Sita and Kaingarya Prabhu Sri Lakshmana look extremely appealing. Mother Maha Lakshmi graces from a different hallowed place. Sri Garuda and Sri Hanuman vahans look in an unexpected way. The sanctuary is little one and has parcel of spot, around it with trees and plants. We see Dwjasthanbam close to the passageway and Garuda close to the Dwajasthambam. As we enter inside we have the darshan of Jaya, Vijayan to either side of the passage. We need to go into artha mandapam and inside in the principle sanctum we have the darshan of Lord Lakshmi Narashima Swamy. Inside the primary sanctum we see two lights lit and fixing to a shaft beside god. One light is to the tallness of fundamental god and the other is mostly down. The light lit to the light on the top is faltering where as the one to the next light is still. They say the shake in the light is because of the breath of Lord Narashima in principle sanctum. This is a one of a kind thing about the Lord of this spot. The deepam here is Akanda Deepam.

Legend and Stories
There are Puranic references to the historical backdrop of Lord Narasimha's appearance at Vadapalli. As per the Puranas, Vyasa Bhagavan, knowing the devotion of the spot, pondered for quite a while on the appearance of Sri Narasimha Swamy. The Lord benedicted him by showing in his brutal Ugra structure.
Vyasa Bhagavan experienced Lord Narasimha exactly when His breath was loaded with huge outrage, so he presumed that the Lord had come to him soon after slaughtering Hiranyakasipu.
Thusly, he implored Sri Narasimha Swamy to show at Vadapalli in that Form as it were. In like manner, Lord Narasimhadeva showed there to favor the enthusiasts and to ease their anguish.
Indeed, even now, it is said that the Deity takes in out. The sanctuary ministers have masterminded two lights here. One lights the substance of the Lord and can be seen to shudder, as proof of the way that the Lord is consistently taking in and out. The second light, kept underneath, blazes unflinchingly.
