Jharni Narasimhaswamy temple, Bidar


Overview: One of Karnataka's best kept secrets is the Jharni Narasimaswamy temple in Bidar. An ancient temple dedicated to Narasimhaswamy situated around 5 kms from Bidar town, its a natural cave temple. The water flows down from Lord Narasimhaswamy's feet and joins Manjeera river and further leads to Singur dam in Andhra Pradesh. A marvel in itself, the pilgrims have to make their way through the water inside the cave to reach the deity of Narasimhaswamy. The water is around 3 feet deep and the cave is infested with Bats and insects. This temple is open from 7am to 6pm. Locker facilities are provided outside the cave for the pilgrims. This is one of its kind temple in Southern India and is a good place to visit.
