Only the vestibule and the sabhamandap of this old Mahadev temple remains standing. However, the Shivling, Nandi and idols of Ganapati, Lakshmi, Narayan and Parvati seem to have survived the test of time. This 18 ft high temple has richly carved doors and pillars, and also has a stone with a Sanskrit inscription in Devanagiri script, of which only the date (1171, 1095 Shake) has been translated.
Devotees visit this temple to seek fulfillment of the following:-
- Relief from diseases
- Purchase of vehicles
- Gain Knowledge
