perumAL is in sitting posture (vIRRirundha thirukkOlam). perumAL has sudharsana chakram in his top right hand and sankham in his top left hand. His lower right had is in ‘abhaya’ mudhrA and lower left hand is resting on his left thigh. He has folded his right thigh and his left leg is resting on a lotus. There are ‘pancha bErars’ in perumAL sannidhi, as well as nardhana krishNan and sudharsanar. He has thrinEthram (three eyes), salagrAma hAram, sahasranAma hAram and lakshmi hAram.

Since narasimha avathAram took place during twilight time, during every pradhOsham (two days before amAvAsya or pourNami) special thirumanjanam and naimiththika ArAdhanam are performed for pradhOsha narasimha mUrthy
