(Ref: Skanda Purana - Purushottama Kshetra Mahatmya - 16)

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

King Indradyumna building a shrine of Lord Nrisimha: Then sage Narada invoked the celestial architect Vishwakarma, and instructed the king to build a shrine for Nrisimha at the place of horse sacrifice with the help of Vishwakarma. This was completed in four days. Narada himself got a second idol of Nrisimha built by Vishwakarma and meditating for five days infused this idol with the prana of the original Nrisimha idol. Then he installed this idol of Nrisimha on Jyestha Shukla Paksha Dwadashi in conjunction with the Swati Nakshatra. King Indradyumna eulogized Nrisimha with various hymns.
