Simhachalam Lakshmi Narasimha Temple History:
The exact age of the temple of Simhachalam is not known, but it contains writings which belong to 1098-1099 AD and which belong to the kingdom of King Chola Kullotunga-I. Another ancient text illustrates a queen of the eastern Ganges of Kalinga which covers the image, and another inscription suggests that the eastern Ganga king of Orissa Narasimha Dev built the main sanctuary around 1267 AD. Up to 252 texts in Oriya and Telugu described the predecessors of the Temple of Simhachalam, therefore, the construction of this powerful facade cannot be clearly attributed to a single entity.
Sri Krishnadeva Raya is believed to have visited the temple twice around 1516 AD and 1519 AD after defeating the Gajapati ruler of Orissa Gajapati Prataparudra Dev in two different accounts. The temple of Simhachalam still contains inscriptions left here by Sri Krishna Devaraya of the Vijayanagara Empire.
