Jai Narsimha is an unique temple

A unique temple. Structure is same as other South Indian temples. Camera is not allowed. VIP darshan is available. Due to dim light it is very difficult to see God.

Visakhapatnam is the another richest city in Andhra Pradesh

Visakhapatnam is the another richest city in Andhra Pradesh and it is the revenue generated city in Andhra Pradesh. In Visakhapatnam so many places are there to visit. Especially Kailasagiri, Bheemili, Ramakrishna Beach and another important and historic and holy place is none other than Simhachalam. In Simhachalam the Swamy Lord Narasimha is situated. It is a very nice place. Each and every step is situated by Lord Narasimha Swamy. The temple was very peaceful, I liked it and loved a lot. There is a bus way to temple marg by road by bus. It's just near to Vizag bus station. Many places are there to visit.
