This 15th century temple, is the finest example of a compact Dravia Vimana type of temple. In plan it has sanctum, vestibule, pillared dance hall, with an entrance porch to the north and south. The Eastern porch is extended into an elegant pillared pavilion. There is a shrine for the goddess to the north which is also elegantly sculpted.
