Saligrama is in the Udupi district on NH17 road. There is a huge temple devoted to Guru Narasimha. The temple is said to have a history of 1000 years. It is believed that Narad Maharshi placed the idol of Guru Narasimha in its current place and then eventually transformed into the current temple structure over the years.
