About Patalathri Narasimhar Temple, Chennai
One more to the list of Chennai temples dedicated to Lord Vishnu, the Patalathri Narasimhar Temple boasts of a beautiful architecture strategically constructed atop a boulder. An 8th century creation, this temple was built by the South India dynasty of the Pallava. While anytime is a good time to visit the temple, experiencing the festivals of Chittirai Brahmotsavam, Narasimha Jayanthi, Pavithra Utsavam and the Maasi float festival is something really unparalleled. On full moon days too there are special rituals at the temple.

An old rock cut temple built by Pallavas. Main deity in sanctum sanctorum is 7 feet tall and has a third eye in forehead (Nettri Kan) which is unique for Perumal. Good and silent ambience. You can get tasty prasadham here.. Podi dosai, puliodharai etc
Sri Padalathri Narasimma Perumal temple is located in Singaperumal Kovil(NH45). From Tambaram 22 km and near by Singaperumal kovil bus stand and railway station. Its 1200 years old temple and constructed by Pallavar period. All construction based on Pallavas period. If you round the temple you will cross cave. So it's look like Girivalam. Every pournamy devotees are coming for Girivalam. Its very peacefull and nice temple. Please visit every Saturday and get god blessings
5 quick facts about Singaperumal Kovil 1) 1500 year old pallava temple 2) 8 ft huge narasimhar in "ugra" form. Lord Narasimhar is a part of small hillock (200-300m high), due to which girivalam is famous here. 3) Thayar Ahobilavalli thayar. 4) According to "Brahmanda Puranam" the temple was surrounded by a big forest where Sage Jabali was doing penance praying for lord appearance. Singaperumal appeared before sage jabali as Ugra Narasimhar with four hands. The Lord even now gives darshan to the devotees in the same form with four hands, two of them holding Sudarsana and Panchajanya and the third in "Abaya Hastha" pose with the fourth pointing towards the earth. Found in sitting posture. 5) the Lord has three eyes, (Thrinetram like Sivaperuman) and wears the Salagrama and Sahasranama garlands. it is believed that if one gets the darshan of the Third Eye, all misery in life would be removed. Temple priest will show us third eye during arathi by lifting the thirunamam.
Blissful temple inside small hill. Mornings are made good with Darshan at this temple to start the day with. Saturdays are never to be missed. On Saturday normally opens at 7:30am, but on portasi Saturday at 6am n expensive t crowd.
Very good temple. People come here to see the 3rd eye of Perumal... crowded on saturdays
