Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 1.106
tabe ta' pāṣaṇḍi-gaṇe karila dalana

tabe ta' — thereafter; pāṣaṇḍi-gaṇe — unto the atheists; karila — did; dalana — subduing; ahovala-nṛsiḿha-ādi — Nṛsiḿhadeva, named Ahovala or at Ahovala; kaila — did; daraśana — visit.
After visiting the temples of Tirumala and Tirupati, Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu had to subdue some atheists. He then visited the temple of Ahovala-nṛsiḿha.
The Ahovala temple is situated in Dākṣiṇātya, in the district of Karṇula, within the subdivision of Sārbela. Throughout the whole district this very famous temple is much appreciated by the people. There are eight other temples also, and all of them together are called the Nava-nṛsiḿha temples. There is much wonderful architecture and artistic engraving work in these temples. However, as stated in the local gazette, the Karṇula Manual, the work is not complete.
