It takes more time in the queue for Prasadam than dharshanam. Varaha Narasimha swamy is resided in Simhachalam temple..who is covered with sandal, which will be removed only on the day of akshaya thruthiya 🙏🏻

Very Large Compound, well spread out temple. Mobiles, Cameras are not permitted inside the temple. The temple closes at 7.00 PM, but the preparation for closure starts at 6 PM. Entries after 6.45 PM are highly unlikely. Better to visit in the day-time

I booked a taxi for one day trip. There are lot of options available I think. 9 hours is enough to visit the temple and come back on time. You can check-in in a budget hotel to drop your luggage and to fresh up.
