Nimbachalam has been a Tapobhoomi, the land of penance, where the Gods and great sages have performed penance to get themselves revealed from their sins. Lord Brahma, after cursed by Lord Siva for having unholy glance at the feet of Goddess Parvathi, performed penance over here to get rid of his sin. Lord Shiva also performed penance here for He committed the sin of killing Lord Brahma (Brahma hatya Pataka). Lord Shiva had to take the form of "Jodulingalu" (Pair of Lingam) on the hill on the order of Sri Narasimha Swami. It is also said that Dharmapala, the king of Kambhoja province, took a holy dip in the Chintamani Lake, which flows on the western side of the Nimbachala hill. He performed tapasya for thirty thousand years to get the divine glance of Lord Sri Narasimha Swami.
