On a trip to Bhadravathi, tourists are 'recommended' to visit the Lakshmi Narasimha Temple which was built in the 13th Century AD by the Hoysala Dynasty. It was constructed by the grandson of Vishnuvardhana named Veera Narasimha. Based on a Nakshtra Style platform, this temple is three feet high and is dedicated to the incarnation of Lord Vishnu, Lord Narasimha. Visitors can also see the idols of Lord Srikrishna, Lord Ganesha, Lord Purushottama and Goddess Sharadamba. The temple is also known as the Threekutachal Temple due to the three Gopurams built inside that can be reached by a flight of five steps.

Outside in the compound wall, there stands the Dwajasthambam along with a stone pillar placed on a small pedestal. The exterior of the temple is engraved in Hoysala style and looks beautiful. The architecture of this temple is presently looked after by the Archaeological Department of Karnataka state.
