Dharmapuri attained religious importance owing to the existence of the shrine dedicated to Narasimha Swamy, an incarnation of Lord Vishnu. Siva With Dakshinamurthy, Vinayaka and Sapitha Mathrukas carved on a single slab of stone and Mahishasuramardhani, the sixty pillared temple, Mahalakshmi temple, Akkapalle Rajanna, and over five hundred year old sri Sita Rama Swami temple are the other temples of importance that heighten the sanctity of the places of tourist interest in the state.

The Ramalingeswara Temple which is of about 1000 years old, is in the proximity of the Narsimha Swamy Temple. It is said among local inhabitants that the Shiv Lingam installed in this temple was installed by Lord Rama during his exile and on way to Lanka in search of Sitha Maatha.

Dharmapuri Narasimha swamy temple has two different statues of the lord Narasimha. The oldest one is called "Pata Narasimha Swamy" meaning Older Narasimha swamy and the one established later is called "kottha Narasimha Swamy" means the Newer one.

The Shiva Lingam established here by Lord Rama during his exile has an interesting story attached to it.

Lord Yama dharmaraj temple and statues of Lord Indra dev, Lord Kubera swamy, Lord Brahma dev, Lord Balarama krishna can also be seen in the proximity of Narasimha swamy temple.

Dharmapuri has one of the largest settlement of Vedic Brahmins in Andhra Pradesh. There have been some traditional families practicing Vedic Hymns and some of the family even have old Talapatra scriptures. There are several small temples virtually in every corner of the street of the town. Until recently people, mostly Brahmin scholars have taken bath in river Godavari before they would perform vedic rites in the temple. There is one rare temple of the God Dattatreya [son of Lord Brahma] which is very rare.

Every year in March/April the devotees of Narasimha swamy come together and celebrates Laxmi Narasimha Swamy Jatara.

There are a number of Satakas (a compilation of 100 poems) written by poets in local script in 18th and 19th centuries. Narasimha Satakam from 19th century is one of them written by Seshappa.
