Simhachalam is a Hindu temple located in the Visakhapatam City suburbs. It is dedicated to the incarnation of Vishnu, known as Narasimha.
It is one of the eighteen “Narasimha Kshetras”, the shrines of Lord Narasimha, in India. The main deity inside the temple sanctum gives “nijaroopa darshan” (holy appearance in true form) for only twelve hours in the year. On Akshaya Tritiya Day, the deity is covered with Sandalwood paste. The darshan described as ‘Chandana yatra’ or ‘Chandanotsavam’ falls every year in Vaisakha maasam (May).
