VAdapalli is in Krishna District close to miriyAlgudA. Lakshmi 
Nrusimhan is the presiding Lord. Two rivers - Krishnaveni and 
Musi garland the temple which follows the pAncharAthra Agamam.
Lord was pratyaksham to sage Agasthyar.

The temple is also known as DeepAlayam. In the sanctum sanctorum
there are two deepams one in front of HIS thirumuga mandalam and one
at HIS thiruvadi. The deepam at HIS thiruvadi glows steadily while
the one near HIS nAsi flickers. The breathing of our Ubiquitous 
Father is what makes this deepam flicker inside the garbagruha.

This kshetram has had the mangalAsAsanam of Sri ParAsara Bhattar.

BTW there are also these other visEsha Nrusimha kshetrams in AP
 - Sri Ahobilam
      KAsyAm yuga sahasrAnI
         PrayAgae yuga vimsathihi |
      GayAyAm yuga sathanchaiva

      { The palan one gets by staying a single day in Sri Ahobilam
        equals a stay of 1000 yugam in KAsi, 100 yugams in GayA and
        20 yugams in PrayAg)
