This town is in the Huzurnagar Taluk, Nalgonda District of Andhra Pradesh and is on the bank of River Krishna. Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Swami (also known as Sri Yogananda Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy) resides in this great temple in his cave dwelling. The other presiding Deities of Mattapalli dhama are Sri Raajyalakshmi and Sri Chenchu Lakshmi, who are present alongside Lord Narasimha. This is one of the temples of Pancha Narasimhas.]
