The temple is an excellent example of Kalinga architectural style. As per the ancient rules, pilgrims must visit Kalabhairava temple before visiting Simhachalam Temple Timings, because Kalabhairava is suppose to be the main guard of Simhachalam and one should not meet Narasimha without his permission.

On normal days, temple is open for visits and prayers from 7 am to 4 pm in morning hours and 6 pm to 9 pm in evening hours.
