Once Srimushnam Ariachar was residing at Thirukkambuliur, about 7 km from Chinthalavadi towards karur. One day Sri Narasimha appeared in his dream and told him, that in the Cauvery shore at Karuppathur, a laundry man is washing clothes on the back of his sculpture,and asked him to bring and install it. As directed Aachar went to Karuppathur.To his surprise the laundrymen also had a dream, Sri Narasimha devaru was asking him to handover the stone to Ariayachar. Ariachar carried the stone towards thirukkambuliur.
When he reached Chinthalavadi the stone was weighing too much and he could not carry it further anymore.
At Chinthalavadi, Vyasarayaru had already installed Mukhyaprana devaru. Ariachar and others went and consulted Vyasarayaru and he instructed them to install Sri Narasimha at chinthalavadi itself. Aftertwards Vyasarayaru came to Chinthalavadi for darshan of Yoga Narasimha and installed SriGopalakrishna also.
People from various parts of India visit yoga Narasimha swamy every year and he is the family deity for thousands of Madhwa community all over India
