Yoga Narasimha Perumal Temple, Narasingam, Yanaimalai, Madurai
Yoga Narasimha Perumal Temple is a Hindu Temple dedicated to Lord Vishnu located at Narasingam in Yanaimalai in Madurai District of Tamilnadu. The Temple is located at the foot of the Yanaimalai hills. This is a rock cut temple and the main deity Narasimhar is carved out of the rock. The temple is a good example of the cave sculpturing of the Pandya Kingdom. Presiding Deity is called as Yoga Narasimhar and Mother is called as Narasingavalli. This place, though not a Divyadesam sanctified by Azhwars' hymns, is situated between two holy places – Alagar Koyil in the north and Thiru Mohur in the east.

History
Maran Kari, the minister of the Pandya king, started the construction of the temple in 770 A.D., which remained unfinished, either due to his death or due to some other calamity, and was completed by his brother Maran Eyinan later. He also built the Muka Mandapam and consecrated the temple. Narasingam Patti is also renowned as the birthplace of the poet, Perungoushiganar well known for his literary work 'Aatru Padai' in ‘Paththuppattu’.

Temple Opening Time

Festivals
The temple bustles with activity during Narasimha Jayanthi and on every Maasi Pournami (full moon day), to act out Gajendra Moksham episode, Thirumohur Kalamegha Perumal (Divya Desam) makes his annual trip to Yanaimalai Narasingam Perumal Temple. On this day, a ritual of oil bath or Abhishekam is performed on the idol of Lord Narasimha. Since the hill is considered as sacred, Girivalam (circling the entire hill) during Full Moon Day is an important event.
Swathi Thirumanjanam and Prathosham Thirumanjanam are the festivals of Yanaimalai Sri Narasingam Perumal Temple. Lord Narasimha’s incarnation happened during the Pradhosha period (between 4.30 PM and 5.30 PM) of Krishna Paksha Chathurthi (fourth day from the Full Moon Day). Special Abhisheka pujas are performed to Sri Narasimha during this period for improvement in studies and business. During the time of Swathi star (the birth star of Yoga Narasinga Perumal) special pujas are held.
