Could anyone tell me which is the best translation of Narasimha Purana in English or Telugu?

I'm looking for a physical book.

  • archive.org/stream/NarasimhaPuranaWithEnglishTranslation/… might be helpful..it contains Sanskrit verses with English translation... – YDS Jun 9 '18 at 20:01

Narasimha Purana with English translation and Sanskrit verses in pdf version can be found in archive.

I could see many sources from where you can order this in a physical book form, now which one is best comes under shopping recommendation and is off topic here.

I know this question is dated, and not sure if my response will help. Any case for others who may stumble upon this question -

Yes an English translation is available published by Parimal Publication here:


But please note that I cannot suggest if it is the best translation. Like other responders noted, that classification is subjective.

In general, translators have their own omissions and commissions, and interpretations vary.
