King Hiranyakasipu who is Rakshasa in nature was very proud as he had the boon of being immortal. He had been granted a boon that he should not get death either by man nor an animal; nor inside his place or outside his place; nor by any weapons whatsoever. This made him feel that the death will never come to him and his ego enforced him to think that everyone on earth should worship him. However, his own son Prahalada was a staunch devotee of Lord Vishnu. This made Hiranyakasipu very angry and he plotted to kill his son. However, whenever he attempted to kill Prahlada, Lord Vishnu arrived at the spot and saved him. While saving him, the feet of Lord Vishnu in the Narasimha form got buried inside the earth and this is the reason why his feet is not visible in the temple. The spot where the Lord stood on the mountain to save Prahalada is the exact location where the temple has been built.
