is an excellent piece of superb artistry. He holds two lotus flowers
in his two hands and over his head there is the seven headed hood of
Adisesha lending dignity and heightening its beauty. He is buffeted
by his consorts, Usha, Padmini and Chaya. In addition, the images of
Sanakasanandas are seen weaving chamaras. It is so fashioned that he
is sitting in his chariot drawn by seven horses with Anura, the
driver holding the reins in his hands. This masterly sculptured icon
lifts souls and pleases the eyes sending thrills in the spines of
viewers. At certain prescribed moments, the suns' rays passing thro'
several doors fall on the feet of this mute archamurti. This ace
craftsmanship of the sculptors deserves highest appreciation. The
temple tank called Surya Pushkarini lies to its eastern side. A bath
emancipates. During Maghmasa and on every Sunday special poojas are
offered. Kalyanotsav falling in Chaitra is a star attraction, when
lakhs of people turn up from near and afar.
