Yadagirigutta also known as Yadadri,[1] is a popular hindu temple situated on a hillock in Yadagirigutta of the Indian state of Telangana. The temple is an abode of Narasimha, an incarnation of Lord Vishnu.

Architecture[edit]

The sanctum sanctorum or Garbhagriha is located in a cave, under a huge slating rock, which covers half the abode.

The Chief Minister of Telangana, Kalvakuntla Chandrashekar Rao directed the officials for the renovation of the temple, and approved a final layout.[2]
