The mythological story related to this Panch Madhav Kshetras goes like this.
Twashta was one of the Prajapatis created by Lord Brahma. He had one son named Vishwarupa. Vishwarupa was very noble and was jitendriya. He once started doing great tapa. Indra became afraid that Vishwarupa might take his kingdom so resorted to all kind of tricks to destroy and disturb his tapsya but all in vain. Then Indra chopped Vishwarupa’s head with his vajrayudh. Indra also lured Taksha to help him in chopping heads of  Vishwarupa.Vishwarupa is said to have three heads.

Sri Sapta Naga

Sthala Vruksha – Athi Tree

On hearing the sad end of his beloved son Twashta got enraged and started homa to creat a massive Asura from his krodhagni. Twashta named him viratasura and ordered him to defeat Indra to avenge the death of his elder brother.Viratasura defeated Indra but later on the treacherous Indra befriended him and killed him . Thus Indra acquired the sin of Brahmahatya ,which is considered to be worst kind of sin. To absolve himself of this great sin Indra consecrated these Panch Madhava temples .

So it is believed that a pilgrimage to these Panch Madhava Kshetras has a power to absolve one off all one’s sins.Sans any fanfare the simple quiet premises, heartfelt discussions with pujaris and other pilgrims.

Stone Carvings

My experience in Veni Madhava temple left me positively energized.To me this temple represented the philosophy that the exterior,our body is perishable while the inner substance, the soul is immortal. The quintessence of our being lies in soul not the body.

Please Visit this Temple and get Blessings from the Lord Sri Bindu Madhava Swamy.

Opposite to Lord Hanuman or Anjaneya, there is a temple of Lord Narasimha (Lord Vishnu). Lord Hanuman is seen facing towards Lord Narasimha with folded hands and worshiping the lotus feet of Lord Narasimha. The special feature of Lord Narasimha is that we can notice the blood stain in the nails of Lord Narasimha, which was believed to be caused by killing the demon king Hiranyakashipu. Lord Narasimha is believed to be a self-manifested idol of Lord Vishnu, who is in the form of ‘Narasimha Swamy’ (half man and half lion). There is also a separate shrine for Goddess Lakshmi, who is popularly called as Goddess Namagiri Lakshmi, the consort of Lord Narasimha.

Benefits of Lighting Deepa

Fine Paintings

In Threthayuga during the Ramayana period, Sri Hanuman lifted the Sanjeevi Mountain from the Himalayas to get medical herbs. He then took the mountain back and replaced it in its original place. When he returned, he brought a salagrama. During his journey, as the sun rose, he went down to the earth and performed the ritual of sandhya vandhana after placing the salagrama near Sri Mahalakshmi’s tapavanam.

After performing the pooja, Hanuman tried to lift the salagrama, but was unable to move it as easily as before. Suddenly, the salagrama grew larger and Hanuman heard an oracle saying, “Lord Narasimha wishes to stay here and he wants Hanuman to save Sri Ramachandramurthy first of all.” Thus, Sri Hanuman completed his task and came to Namakkal Sthala on the western side of the rock, where he stands in open air and worships Lord Narasimha Swamy.
