This place is very important “Darshaneeya Kshetra”. The Padukas of Sri Nrisimha Saraswathi Swamy which are worshipped in this temple is brownish-Red in color. It is not known if they are made of stone or wood. When touched they feel soft, like the limbs of a human body. They were left here by Sri Nrisimha Himself before He left for Kardali Van near Srisailam. Kardali Van was the place Sri Nrisimha left His earthly body and merged with the Parabrahm.

Worst management, Fully Religious Business is their, Treat as Animal
Temple was good but administration was worst, poojari very commercial.First change the commercial poojari
The temple is very divine, but it needs to be maintained properly by government and public. Some devotees that come here are illiterate and litter the temple with garbage
Extremely poorly managed temple.
localities should look into this matter.
The temple needs cleaning and good management , the prasad is mishandled.
Pandit should be respect everyone and should maintain a que line as per rule they are only violating rules and making people fools in temple and collecting money from persons so everyone will get interest to come temple with family because of them everyone are back it was going on everytime no government is taking against them
