acquired the images, Naraharitirtha went about touring and preaching. During his tours,
one night he dreamt that an image of Lord Vishnu was submerged near a tank near the town
where he was staying. He made arrangements to bring out that image, and also made
arrangements for its proper worship and retired to the banks of the Tungabhadra where he
lived till his end. This legendary story of Naraharitirtha is fully borne out by many of
the inscriptions and epigraphs that are available at the Srikurmam temple.
