  • One of the most neat and clean temple I have seen yet. There's no fuss, well maintained temple with really good idols. The temple is located in middle of a village and hence there are no flurry of people here even on the weekends, it probably would get crowded in festival period.
  • This place is near Pandavapura about 8-9 km. from Pandavapura. It is a temple dedicated to Vishnu and the main deity is called ‘Nambi Narayana’. Nambi is a Kannada word which means ‘believe’. The temple was constructed during the Hoysala ruling around 12th century AD. The main deity of the temple Narayana’s idol is a beautiful piece of carving and looks magnificent standing at 1.8 meters. The temple stands on a huge plot and has a vast area. The temple is completely a stone construction and you can not stop wondering how wonderfully they have assembled the stones during the age when no types of machinery were available. As in most of the olden temples, the pillars have intricate carvings, the ceiling has Sri Chakra and many stone pillars support the roof of the temple. The pictures describe this marvel better. It is a peaceful place where you can spend some time meditating.
  • Ancient temple maintained by ASI. A must visit for temple and history lovers. Beautiful scenery around.
  • Calm Village. We need to wait for some time as the priest does the pooja for nearby temple. In the entrance, there is a separate temple for Santhanakrishnan and back of the temple , Narasimha temple is situated in a small hill where we can see a place where Ramanuja had debate with Jains in the form of Athisesha. His Thundam is still there. If you pray to this Narasimha by offering cloths to him, there is a belief that he will get your things done as quickly as possible
  • A wonderful lineage left behind...a beautiful temple in the midst of nature..sri nambi narayana temple is quite old and the great saint ramanujacharya stayed and performed his prayers here for long long time...stories about sri ramanujacharya answering 1000 jains and winning the debate is a folklore here...sri nambi narayana swamy, the presiding deity here so majestic that you cant take ur eyes off...
