Hello Traveller,

This is a very ancient temple of Lord Vishnu of Narasimha avatar and with it, this temple is also the main temple of Joshimath. It is believed that the idol of Lord Vishnu's Narasimha avatar in this temple was installed by Shankaracharya himself with his own hands.

According to some beliefs, it is believed that the idol is installed in this temple. His right hand is getting thinner which is as thin as a hair and the day this hand breaks it is believed that on that day Jai Vijay who comes on the way to Badrinath will unite both the mountains and the God of Badrinath temple.
