Kadiri PRATHAMAM VENKATACHALAM DVITIYAM NARASIMHAM is a popular saying in Kadiri.The name of kadiri came from the presence of very many Kaadri plants. This is a chandra “moon” plant.

According to Sri. Parthasarathy when Brighu was doing tapas here, near the pushkarini, Narayana told Bhrigu to lift him out of the pushkarini. The murthy has 8 hands and there is a shanka, chakra, ghadham, khadgam and other arsenals. There is also a big diety of Sri Prahalada near the murthy. Parthasarathy also stressed that this is the main place where the narasimha leela happened in some yuga. This is the moola spot of the nava narasimha temples. The Lakshmi here is called AmruthaValli.

Important Functions and days:
On Swathi Nakshatra the moola diety is given an abhishekam. This is a very big ritual and is very crowded at all times on the Swathi day.
Bramhostavam is on Anuradha Nakshatra in Phalguni Maasa.
