At a distance of 0.8 km from Wadapally Bus Stand, 26 km from Miryalaguda Bus Station, 68 km Nalgonda and 172 km from Hyderabad, Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy temple is located at Wadapally in Nalgonda District of Telangana.

Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy temple is situated at the confluence of the River Krishna and Musi River at Wadapally. This temple is dedicated to Lord Narasimha, an incarnation of Lord Vishnu. This is an ancient temple built during Vijayanagar ruler Krishna Devaraya period. The deity is in a very angry posture.

According to the Puranas, Vyasa maharshi meditated for a long time for the manifestation of Sri Narasimha Swamy at Wadapally. Vishnu pleased with his penance and appeared before him in the form of Narasimha. Vyasa requests him to stay in Wadapally in the form of Narasimha to which Vishnu obliged. Accordingly, Sri Narasimha Swamy manifested there to bless the devotees and to reduce their difficulties. It is believed that even now the idol breathes in and out.

The other famous temple located in Wadapally is the Sri Meenakshi Agasteswara Swamy temple (0.4 km from Narasimha Temple).
