These construction was made by Hindu- wadar caste peoples from karnataka. Its architecture resembles South Indian temple construction. The temple has been beautifully constructed from black stone brought from Jyotibha hills.

The image−chamber has a spire 10.36m, flanked by our smaller ones 2.43 meters shorter making a grand composition. Mandapa has a flat roof of carved Stone slabs. The hall consists of a nave with three aisles made by two rows of pillars with a 3.04m space between them. At the hall's entrance are two shrines of the bull Nandi and the man−eagle Guard 6.40m high including the pinnacles (shikhara). The entrance gateway formed by a masonry arch surmounted by a tower of the form known as the Gopura and the Gopur is a large and lofty pinnacle. It is seven-storied, gradually tapering to a ridge at the top. The lowest storey measures 11.27m, the whole is 29.08 m high, and the kalas (pinnacles) and curved arms are 0.17 m higher.
