Sri Lakshmi Narsimha Swamy Temple


The temple can be easily reached and is located in Singiri Koyil, 25 km from the city of Vellore, Tamilnadu.


There is a big hill and at the foot of the hill, this temple is situated on a small hillock. This is one of the most beautiful scenic and dreamy spots you will happen to see. The temple will be closed if the river flows in full stream and this happens for about a week in a year.

The sanctum sanctorum and the Lord were the other sweet surprises. The sanctum sanctorum was quite big with the Lakshmi Narasimhar in sitting posture in Santha roopam with Goddess Lakshmi on His right lap (usually He will have His consort on His left lap). The Lord is about 6 feet high with four hands – two hands hold the conch and the chakra, third (left) hand is on His lap and the fourth (right) hand is around the waist of Goddess Lakshmi. The adornment for the Lord and the sanctum sanctorum were so beautiful that anybody without much devotion will easily fall in love with the deity.

Good architecture and one of the oldest temples of Vellore. Thirumanjanam is performed on every Swathi Nakshatram, which is the birth star of Narasimha. Narasimha Jayanthi, Vaikunda Ekadesi, Ratha Sapthami, Tamil and English New Year and Purattasi Saturdays are celebrated here.

Dharshan timings are from 09 AM to 12 PM and from 5PM to 6.30PM.
