However, most of these temples were built in the recent past. Let us discuss about a temple named Narasimha temple in this article.

As there are two Narasimha temples in Nanganallur, this particular temple is referred as the New Narasimha temple. It is located in 24th Street of Thillai Ganga Nagar.


The temple is located on the first floor of the building. The presiding deity is Shanta Narasimha along with Lakshmi. He is seated under the five hood serpent, Sesha. The idol of Narasimha is very beautiful and big. A small idol of Prahalad is found at his feet.
