Bidar is a city in the Indian State of Karnataka, named after Bamboo, locally called “Bidiru”. The origin of its name traces back to an old bamboo jungle that lasted in the area. This city at the edge of the Deccan Plateau is from the northeastern part of the state, hence called the peak of Karnataka. Bidar city is regarded for its ancient forts and handicraft products. The city, the district, and the fort are all tagged with the name Bidar. The city has other main attractions like Basavakalyana Fort, Guru Nanak Jhira Sahib, Narasimha Jhira Cave temple, and Old Bidar Fort.
Narasimha Jhira Cave Temple worships the lion god Narasimha, an incarnation of Lord Vishnu. It is also known as Narasimha Zarna Cave temple or Jharani Narasimha Temple. People throng to this temple because it is believed that the idol at the Narasimha Jhira Cave temple is self-manifested and is very powerful. This ancient temple excavated from a 300-meter tunnel under the Manichoola hill range, houses a fresh stream of water. Hence the devotees have to walk waist-deep in water for 300 m to have a glimpse of the idol.
