Narasimha Temple

This temple, popularly known as Narasimha's temple is in the west centre of the citadel. The temple is dedicated to God Dattatraya (in the name of Narasimha Saraswati, believed as an incarnation of Dattatraya). The audience hall was a stone structure, but is has now been replaced by a gabled courtyard iron cover standing on wooden pillars. Ibrahim Adil Shah II. seems to have taken great interest in this temple and is reported to have also worshipped in it. There are placed a pair of padukas (sandals) as object of worship.
