Sri Lakshmi Gunja Narasimha temple- T. Narsipur

Lakshmi Gunja Narasimha temple  is situated at Tiru Narasipur Panchayat.
The Triveni sangam of river Kaveri, Kabini and Spatika is just opposite the temple .

The small village presents a perfect picture any would love to see. Sylvan surroundings,the cool breeze, the river flowing in front., cattle roaming peacefully, birds chirping is enough for anyone to forget self and get drown in the total scene.

The temple is at 35 kms from Mysore.
The town derives its name from the temple deity.

 Lord Narasimha  is seated here with a  small Gulganji seed in his hand.  This temple is as as sacred as Kashi, as said by the Lord Himself.,this was in response to  his great devotee a washerman,who built the temple on orders of the Lord .After building the temple he wanted to attain moksha by visiting Kashi. Lord Narasimha told him he has already attained more punya by the weight of a gulganji than by visiting kashi .

There is a huge Gulganji tree in front of the temple.
