The central ceiling is heavy decked with Astadikpalas. On the outer walls  are carvings of erotic  figures.

This temple is a good piece of art from the Yadava Period. Though the temple was open during our visit, the priest was unavailable for gathering more information. The temple needs more maintenance and restoration.
