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.
