Sri Neimisaaranyam is an important Divya Desam among the 108 Sri Vaishnava Divya Desams wherein the Lord Sriman Narayana is residing in the form of Aranya (forest). This Kshetram is revered by all as this was the place where all the Maharishis and Sages used to meet and did many yagnas. Even Lord Rama did Ashwametha Yagna at this place.This kshetram is the birth place of all Puranas. Sri Tirumangai Azhwar has done Mangalasaasanam of the Lord at Sri Neimisaaranya as "vandu un tiruvadi adainthen Neimisarathulendai" (I came to surrender to you O! The Lord of Neimisaranya). The greatness of the Kshetram is agumented by the holy waters of Chakra Teertham and Gomathi river. It is stated in the Purnas that all the holy rivers come to Chakra Teertha during Amavasya and taking bath at this place is equal to taking bath in all holy rivers. Srimad Bhagavata Purana Patanam is happenning all through the year in this place. Though the Lord is in the form of Aranya here there are several temples and other holy places of various sages in this place which make this Kshetram as as important place of pilgrimage.

His Holiness Devanarvilagam Srimad Azhagiyasingar (the 43rd Jeer) commenced his Vijaya Yatra from the Hills of Ahobilam with a sankalpam to go up to Badrinath and retun back to Sri Ahobilam to end his Vijaya Yatra. After his Mangalasasanam at Badrinath His Holiness came to Nymisaranyam in November,1957. However, true to the words of Tirumangai Azhwar for this kshetram, due to ill health, he attained Lords feet at Nymisaranyam. His Brindavanam was consecrated by His Holiness Srimad Mukkur Azhagiyasingar (the 44th Jeer) and the Ahobila Mutt branch was set up with a Sannidhi for Lakshmi Narasimha in the place given by Sri Sridharaachari, a local North Indian Ahobila Mutt disciple . His Holiness Srimad Villivalam Azhagiyasingar (the 45th Jeer) set up a separate Trust called "Nymisaranyam Azhagiyasingar Charitable Trust" with an aim to construct a big temple and other facilities for the benefit of all pilgrims. As a first step he renovated the Mutt premises in 2001 and celebrated the Centenary of Srimad Devanarvilagam

Azhagiyasingar in a grand manner. His Holiness Srimad Tirukudandai Azhagiyasingar (the 46th Jeer), has visited the place in 2015 and has taken the sankalpam to accomplish the unfulfilled desire of His Holiness Azhagiyasingars, by constructing a beautiful Nava Nrusimha Temple at Nymisaranyam and naming it as "Uttara Ahobilam". It seems all the Ahobilaranya Lions (Narasimhas) wanted to see the new forest "Nymisaranya", to make true the sankalpa of His disciples. It appears that, since Devanarvilagam Azhagiaysingar could not go to Ahobilam the Lords of Ahobilam has decided to come to Nymisaranyam and accomplish the wish of Sri Devanarvilagam Azhagiyasingar of completing the Vijaya Yatra at Ahobilam. His Holiness 46th Srimad Azhagiyasingar has declared the details of "Uttara Ahobilam" Project as detailed below.

It is proposed to construct the temples in the Uttara Ahobilam project as detailed below:

  1. Basement: There is a basement of 100 feet by 100 feet square on which the 9 temples are going to be built. The basement will accomodate guest rooms, prayer hall, dormitory rooms, Madaipalli (kitchen) and other utilities.

On the compound wall inside there are going to be carvings of Narasimha Avatar, Sri Adivan Satakopar story, Sri Devanarvilagam Azhagiyasingar's story and pictures of alwars and acharyas. On the temple wall there will be images of all 46 Azhagiyasingars.
