Introduction

The ancient name and the builder of this Hindu shrine are not known. But according to the style of architecture this may have been built somewhere in the 13th century A.D. As it is located between this citadel and the sacred quadrangle it may have been regarded as an important shrine at the time. The main object of worship is the stone lingam in the inner sanctum.
