The auspicious Narasimha Jayanti is celebrated all across India today. Narsimha Jayanti is an annual festival celebrated to mark the birth anniversary of Lord Narsimha.

Lord Narsimha, who is fourth incarnation of Lord Vishnu, had appeared on 14th day of Shukla Paksa during sunset. This day is considered highly auspicious among ardent devotees of Lord Vishnu. On this day, devotees of Lord Vishnu observe fast, which is similar to Ekadashi fasting.
