Kavitha Kalvakuntla, Member of Legislative Council-Kamareddy & Nizamabad, Telangana shared a video of the temple on Twitter writing, “Majestic view of the magnificent and beautiful Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Yadari Temple. May the blessings of divine Lord bring peace, prosperity and strength for all.”

Endowments minister Indrakaran Reddy stated that the temple was carefully designed with the goal of lasting 1,000 years. The magnificence of the monument created with black granite drew a significant response from people from all walks of life.

Inside the temple

Everything has been extremely well taken care of in the temple’s reconstruction, from the stone used in the building to the sculptures and their religious significance, and craftsmanship as per Vaastu Shastra. The black granite used in construction, Krushna Sila, was acquired from Gurujapally in the Guntur district.

Around the Mukha Mandapa, which leads to the sanctum sanctorum, which is 18 feet below ground, statues of the 12 Alwars depicting the Kakatiyan style of construction have been erected. With all of these sculptures, chandeliers, golden Dhwaja Sthamba, and architectural style, the corridor in front of the sanctum sanctorum evokes the royal splendour found within a king’s court.

Unlike other temples, which have a 7-foot Garbhalaya entrance, this temple has an 11-foot Garbhalaya door with a golden Nava Narasimha Swami artwork.
