Yogi Narayana is a bilingual poet saint who lived during the 18th century and has composed keerthanas towards local diety Amaranarayana Swamy. He was believed to be a common man , who got enlightened during his mid age & later attained nirvana through meditation.

An idol is consecrated to Yogi Thataiya inside the mutt , behind this idol is his samadhi. Spot is calm , silent and ideal for meditation.
