The place is noted for a Vijayanagara temple of Prasanna Anjaneya. It has a squarish Garbhagriha with a standing profile image (1. 5 metres tall) of Anjaneya ascribed to Vyasatirtha. There is a Shala Shikhara over the Garbhagriha. There is no Ardhamantapa. The spacious Navaranga has square pillars with circular capitals at the top and many of them have the Vijayanagara (lanchana) represented by the divine boar, dagger and sun and moon. The deity is believed to be having healing powers and hence is called Sanjeevaraya. Crude carvings with names of individuals coming for treatment of mental diseases are engraved all round the floor of the courtyard inside. The annual Jatra is held on Ashadha Suddha Dwadashi when more than 20, 000 people assemble, coming from for off places.
