Sri Lakshminarasimha Perumal temple is situated at Poovarasankuppam, a small village about 15kms from Villupuram district in Tamil Nadu, India. The residing deity is Sri Lakshminarasimha Perumal and his consort, Amirthavalli Nayaki Thayar. The Temple is also popularly known as "South Ahobilam".

Sthala Puranam:
Lakshmi Narasimhaswamy Temple in Poovarasankuppam is about 1200 years old. After Hiranya vadha Lord Narasimha whose rage didn’t subside was roaming all over the earth. On the Northern shore of the river South Pennai in South India also known as Dakhshin Pinnakini, the "Saptha Rishi' or Seven rishis prayed to the Lord to have his darshan. The spot were the Lord gave the darshan is called Poovarasankuppam. However, the intensity of the Lord was so much that the rishis couldn’t bear it. They prayed him to cool down and requested his darshan along with his consort Amirthavalli thayar who gracefully obliged. Here the Lord appeared with the Thayar on his lap.

While she partially faces the lord as if in a conversation with him, forwarding the bakthas prayers, she also bestows her blessings with her glance at the bhaktas who visit her temple. This act of the Goddess Lakshmi brought a soothing and tranquil effect on the Lord. To this day, it is only at this temple in the whole world does the Lord Lakshmi Narasimhar appear in such a pose.

There is another legend to this Kshetram. Once a king belonging to the Pallava dynasty embraced Jainism and started destroying Vishnu and Shiva temples. He imprisoned those who protested against him. The king imprisoned those who protested against him. One of the protesters happened to be a sage ‘Narahari’, who was sentenced to death by the king. Due to his action the king was cursed with ‘Brahma hathi dosham’. The curse started having its effect. The king was besieged with problems and difficulties Realizing his folly he repented for his sins and sought the blessings of the sage. On his way to the sage’s abode he rested for a while beneath a ‘poovarasan tree’. The Lord appeared in his dream and declared that he would be redeemed of his curse as the sage would come there to bless him. On waking up a leaf from the poovarasan tree dropped on the king, were he saw the image of Lord Lakshmi Narasimha. Overwhelmed with happiness the king knew no bounds when the sage appeared in person to bless him. The king was absolved of the curse. As per the wishes of the sage, the king constructed a temple for the Lord at Poovarasan Kuppam.

Hi All,

Couple of months before i visited the temple and yesterday me and my friend visited again. To go to the temple we need to catch a bus to Sivanthadu and from there we need to go by auto. The temple is 3 Kms from Siruvanthadu. The bus frequency directly to temple is very less. Hence devotees visiting the temple can go to Siruvanthadu and then go by auto.The darshan was really nice.

16Yesterday me and couple of my friends visited Poovarasankuppam and parikal. We started around 7:00 am from tambaram, reached villupuram at 9:15 am. From there we took a bus to Siruvanthadu and from siruanthadu we took a auto. We spent more an an hour in the temple. Its really a nice darshan. and from there came to villupuram , took a bus to parikal. Devotees going by bus are advised to catch uluthurpet bus, get down at kedilam and from then take share auto. In Parikal also , we had a very good dharsan.
