  • Very small temple, already a little weathered and little meaningful especially since completely overflowing in the middle of a plant
    View original
  • Known as Atyantakama Pallasvesvaran. Apparently around 672-727. This temple seemed to be being formally used.  more »

  • Location behind Arjuna' penance, beside Krishna's butter ball. It is one of ten rathas/chariots carved out of pink granite.There used to be lingam in this temple, which has been replaced by the idol of Ganesha around 50 years back. Ganesha ratha only completed structure among all other rathas. Three tier architecture, you can see two Dwarapalakas at facade, two pillars. Above you can see kudus. Top of roofs covered with 9 kumbam. Back wall not carved.
