Lord Vishnu was pleased with Brahma and Dharma Varma and appeared before them in the shape of Narasimha.
Brahma thereupon requested him to remain there permanently in his Soumya Rupa and not in Ugra Rupa and to restore to him (Brahma) his worship etc. which he lost due to the curse of Rishi Bhrigu. Narasimha granted these two boons and accordingly established himself in his Soumya Rupa at the same spot. This is called the present village of Dharmapuri. The Dhruvabera of the Lord in this temple is seated in Padmasana position with palms extended downwards on the knees. The appearance is in the yogic form
and not in the Ugra Rupa. .
