The North-Western Provinces list gives the following information, "...Close to the banks of the lake, is a small unique temple of the early Chandella period, measuring 15 feet by 12 feet, and built of massive blocks of grey granite without mortar. The temple proper consists of four small cells, each of which has a slightly ornamented door, and is capped with a kalasa resting on a low pyramidal row of stones. Over three of the doors is a small figure of Ganesha, whilst the fourth contains a figure of Durga. The portico in front of the temple is supported on five massive pillars, with cruciform capitals, topped by large architraves and massive slabs."
