is a 6th century temple constructed with large bricks and mud on
a high terrace of 15.41 meter. The art work of the temple is similar to
the Gupta period and the elaborate carvings on the exterior brick and
terracotta panels shows the skillful craftsmanship of the workers.

of an upper chamber. The temple has a central offset on three sides and
there is an entrance hall, which is connected by a rectangle passage.
