Panakala Lakshmi Narasimha Swami
Andhra Pradesh

Panakala Lakshmi Narasimha Swami is a cave temple situated on the Mangalagiri hills. Mangalagiri is one of the Ashta swayamvyaktha Kshetras of Mahavishnu. Narasimhar is Swayambhu here.
Sthala Puranam says that there was an asura, Namuchi, who was destroyed by Mahavishnu here. It is said that Mahavishnu has told Devas that offering Panakam will cool down his anger after slaying demon Namuchi. This happened in Krithayugam, and
he would be satisfied with ghee in Threthayugam, milk in Dwaparayugam & with panakam(Jaggery water) in Kaliyugam.

We can pour Panakam to Wide open mouth of Narasimhar and a gargling sound is heard while pouring. This will happen every time we pour the jaggery water.
