|Description:||What remains of this temple shows influences both of Chalukyan and Orissan origin. Although the general form of the sikhara resembles that of the Vaital Deul at Bhuvanesvara and copies of sikharas in Orissan style can still be clearly seen above some doors and niches, there are elements which are peculiar to the chalukyas, such as the honey-comb kudu motifs above the side doors and the summit arches which resemble those adorning the Visvakarma cave at Ellora. the sculpture and decoration of the uprights of the doors is clearly post-gupta. The building of this temple can thus be dated to between the 8th & 9th C.|
