Lord Narasimha is one the ten incarnations of Lord Vishnu. He is a Kshatriya, the community of warriors, who can single-handedly destroy thousands of soldiers. He has awesome power and he was the rescuer of Prahlad from the clutches of the cruel king Hiranyakashipu.

He is a half-man, half-lion incarnation and the remover of obstacles from the life of all human beings. He took the lion form of Lord Vishnu to kill the demon Hiranyakashipu. Ahobilam is a place of Narasimha worship and the uniqueness of this place is that it has all the nine forms of Lord Narasimha. Ahobilam is also called Nava Narasimha Kshetra.
