Seebi Narasimha Swamy Temple History:
Seebi was the vanaprastra ashram of Shibi Chakravarthy, the grandson of bhakta Prahlad for whom Narasimha appeared in person to kill his Demon father Hiranyakashipu. Shibi Chakravarthy wanted to worship Lord Narasimha and in return Lord Narasimha enshrined himself here as Narasimha Shaligrama. He is shaped larger than a linga and faces northeast in this temple. There are no visual of Narasimha Swamy and it is the shaligrama that is adored. Subsequently, this Shaligrama was also worshiped by Lord Sri Rama, for begetting issues. It is also said that Chandrahasa, then king of Kuntala, also worshiped Narasimha Shaligrama to remove obstacles.
In 1797, in the old state of Mysore, Fauzdar Nallapa, a Fauzdar Brahmin in Mummudi Krishna Raja Wodeyar, intended to build a temple in memory of his mother and his father Kacheri Krishniah. Narasimha swamy appeared in a dream to Nallappa and told him to build a temple and worship him in Seebi, since he was not worshiped. The construction of the temple took 10 years to complete. The temple is painted with themes of Ramayana, Mahabharatha and Dashavatara which have eroded over time.
