No one remains hungry after reaching this shrine which is located in a hamlet deep inside the forested area of this particular region.

At Kalwa Narsimha Swamy, we can see the deity seated in a yogic posture. To his side, we see Narsimha Swamy's consort Goddess Lakshmi. This is a rare form of the God, as we see that most of the other temples usually house the more furious avatar of Narsimha Swamy. We can also see a Ratham or the holy chariot in the temple premises. The Ratham is decorated with different types of colourful flowers on special occasions and it carries the idols of gods and goddesses. The area around the temple is made tourist friendly.

The entrance gateway of this temple is really attractive with a small tower with images of Hindu Gods and Goddess. It is perfectly based on the South Indian Hindu temple architectural style and pattern. The temple isn't visible among the thick vegetation in the surrounding from the main road. In a religious manner as per the Vedic rules and regulations, the sub-temples in this temple complex are arranged in systematic aspects. The flooring and ceiling is really unique. The walls and pillar in this temple has large sized images that depict the glory of Lord Narasimha. The main sanctum is very a small structure when compared to other Hindu temples of this region.
