Sri Narasimha Swamy emerged out of Yagna Gundam in the form light and blessed the Rishis. It is said that Sage Kasyapa installed Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy on an auspicious day, that is before Vaisaka Suddha Pournami and on the day when the Swathi Naksthram or star was ascendant. The seven Yanga Gundam which were used to perform Yagna, were now turned into Seven tanks (Koneru) and the protector for the Yagna Sri Prasanna Lakshmi Sametha Sri Govindaraja Swamy is still there at the tanks.
