Huge dress changing and cooking halls

The temple is in a slope of a hillock. From up the hill, there are stairs to go down to the temple. Otherwise the car goes down to a parking space. From there one can climb stairs to reach the temple. On either side there are huge halls for changing cloths after Darshan. I went there by 12:30 pm. Families were cooking palav, pooris, Rotis etc on firewood. Few have brought gas cylinders to cook also. Few sat all round and were eating food together. Lots of laughter and togetherness, I felt. I did not plan to enter the temple because there is no privacy to change wet cloths. It looks the deity is very powerful and the temple has lots of devotees.

Different experience of visiting

It is a rare and different kind of temple situated at entrance of Bidar. Temple is surrounded by hills and green open lands. Everyone should walk in water to see and pray the Lord Narasimha. If you want to visit then take extra pair of dress. Temple has Lockers and Dress changing rooms. Darshan ticket 5 rupees.

Sacred place to get blessing of Lord Vishnu

This is a very nice place to go and get blessing of lord Vishnu. You will find the history from google. This place is about 3 Km from Bidar fort bus stop(Towards Zaheerabad). There are lot of autos available to go to that place with a minimal fee of Rs 50/60( Depends upon bargain).The temple is having a cave pathway with full of water 365 days. You have to go inside the temple in wet condition through the water way. No such fee is collecting by the authorities. You can take your own food cooking materials for a picnic. There are lot of place available for cooking.This place is near to Zaheerabad( Around 30-32 KM) from where you will find lot of buses. Otherwise trains are also available to go to Bidar. This place is really a good place for Hindu devotees.There is a open bath place also available for travellers. For ladies closed rooms also available. The scenic also very attractive. Cameras are allowed to take photography. Adviced to carry ample quantity of drinking water but shops also available in fewer numbers. Hotels not available for fooding.

Temple is located in an underground cave

This temple is very famous among the pilgrims and it's also very famous among tourist because of its location. It is inside an underground cave which is filled with water and bats are there all over the ceiling of the cave. Doesn't it sound amazing and yes that is what attracts maximum tourist to this temple. We reach there during the day time there is no proper parking place all the cars were parked in an assorted fashion. Shoes are not allowed so you need to leave them in the car manage the rough way till the main cave entrance. You will walk down steps for about 100 yards on the way you will find about 25-30 shops selling religious stuff, things to offer during worship. After reaching the entrance of the cave seeing condition of the place I just could not pacify myself to get in to that not so clean water. So I decided not to go inside but if you bend down you can see a long tunnel which goes till the main idol. Later my friends pulled me in and I walked through that water filled with bat droppings. Outside the temple you fill find impish black faced langoors (monkeys) beware don't carry any food items.
