About the temple


The bricked temple is given a thick cement coating from outside that looks like marble from a distant. The plinth is raised in three layers of bricks.A hum panel of airborne staircases facing the south facade perfectly matches the muscular construction of the temple base. The sanctum cube and the porch walls discretely support the dome like a crescent crown. The short heighted porch dome is artistically decorated with floral motifs. Above it the crown rests on a short neck which further carries two Kalsas. The internal sanctum is unified with the porch hall which is further separated in to two chambers partitioned by an iron breakdown that leads to a staircase outside
