Darshan of Lord Nrisimha on Nila mountain

(Ref: Skanda Purana - Purushottama Kshetra Mahatmya - 15)

Jagannath temple, Puri, Puri district, OdishaMeditation: I meditate on Lord Nrisimha abiding on the Nila mountain.

Indradyumna climbing the Nila mountain; seeing the idol of Nrisimha and the former place of Nilamadhava: The king left the chariot behind and worshipping Mahadeva and Devi Durga climbed the difficult terrain of the Nila mountain. Sage Narada guided the king to the place where the Lord was residing as Nrisimha. The idol was of extremely terrible form and the king bowed to the Lord from a distance. Then he enquired the sage about the former place of Nilamadhava. When sage Narada showed him the spot, the king prostrated on the ground and eulogized the Lord with deep devotion. An ethereal voice assured the king that the Lord will be visible to him later and urged him to carry out the direction of Brahma as mentioned by Narada. King Indradyumna was assured and decided to perform the horse sacrifices.
