At Avaniyapuram, Lord Nrsimha is found in a small cave. There is Yoga Nrsimha on the same hill at a higher altitude where Lord Venkateswara is housed. Here Lord Nrsimha is in a sitting posture, Mahalakshmi who has the face of a lioness is seated on his left thigh. His left arm is around His Consort and His right hand is in Abyaha Hasta position. His upper hands are holding the chakra and the conch.
There is a separate shrine for Mahalakshmi near the Nrsimha temple. There are five Nrsimha deities in all looking alike next to the Mahalakshmi temple. Thus we have eight Nrsimha idols and it makes a total of nine including the Yoga Narasimha atop the hill.
The abode of Lord Venkateswara is at the top of the hill. Here Lord Venkateswara is standing armed with Chakra and Shanka. There is a separate cave-like enclosure in the prahara of Lord Venkateswara where we see Lord Varadaraja and Perundevi Thayar. Lord Ranganatha is seen on His serpentine bed with Ranganayaki Thayar. Yoga Narasimha is in a sitting position along with Amirdavalli Thayar.
Thus we see all the main Pancha Divya Desa Deities — Kanchi, Srirangam,
Sholingur, Tirumala and Ahobilam.
During the time of Treta Yuga Lord Brahma was doing a fire scarifies and that time from the fire of the Sacrifice Lord Narasimha appeared in front of him. Due to the heat Lord didn’t have a face when he came from the fire. Seeing this Mahalakshmi told to Nrsimha that how you will give Darshan to Devotees without a face hence please grant me your face to me. Pleased by the Mahalakshmi lord gives his face and hence in this Kshetra Mahalakshmi with lion face giving darshan to all and this day is celebrated once in 60 Years of Sarvadhari Samvathsarm Aani Month 9th day.
