Yoga Narasimha Temple Melkote

Revisited Melkote once again last weekend. The climate was terrific. The overcast day was great to make HDRs.


The Yoga Narasimha temple stands at 1777 mtrs above sea level is a creation of the Hoyasala times with a beautiful idol of Yoga Narasimha seated with the Yogapatta.The place provides a panoramic view of the entire village at the foothills.This is believed to be one of the seven holy centres for Sri Vaishnavas.A huge drum donated by Tipu Sultan of Mysore can be seen inside the temple.
