Identify Image and the place from where the person in the image is from
This beautiful and unusual vigraha is of Ramanuja in the Yoga Narasimha temple, Thondanur, Karnataka. Here Ramanuja gives darshan in His adiseshaavathara. It is said that Sri Ramanujacharya addressed a gathering of 1000 jain pundits and answered all their questions simultaneously by taking the form of Adisesha with a 1000 heads from behind a curtain. The amazed pundits were awe struck and then converted to Vaishnavism. This is the avathar found in the temple.
