dc.descriptionThis well-preserved little temple, standing in the middle of the village, is in all probability the Vaishnava temple built during the reign of King Parthva (A.D. 906-921) by his minister, and named Meruvardhana-swamin. It now stands in the water of a shallow pool that occupies the former courtyard. Originally, it seems to have had a third storey or division to its roof, but that has fallen
dc.descriptionthe lower part of the building, however, exhibits all the characteristic features of the style in as much perfection as almost any other known example. It consists of a shrine only, 11ft. 7 in. square inside, with doors on all four sides, and the inside roof covered with sculpture. (Fergusson, I, p. 267-8)
