Lakshmi Narasimha Temple

The Lakshmi Narasimhar Temple can be found around 55 km from Chennai and 21 km from Arakkonam, in Narasingapuram, Thiruvallur. From the times of grandeur and glory that existed in South India. The sanctuary of Lakhsmi Narasimha at Narasingapuram still gloats the period of Cholas and Vijayanagara Rayas. The Lakshmi Narasimha Temple is arranged in the town of Narasingapuram accepted to be named after the temple. There are around of 14 engravings in and around the sanctuary in which two of them have a place with the Chola period. Also, this stands as a prove that the sanctuary even survived the Saivism wave that produced results under the Cholas in the early period like numerous other vital Vaishnavite sanctuaries that survived it in South India in the early period. All these engravings are in Sanscritised Telugu which is still a nearby dialect winning in the encompassing regions of Narasingapuram.
