The Chaya Someswaralayam lying to the east of this, built amidst paddy fields enshrines many more marvels that beckon reverent attention and soulful prayers. The sculptors reached a new high with the construction and installation of the Sivalinga in the midst of knee-deep water, the shadow of which falling on the rear wall remains constant from dawn to dusk. This pillar form of shadow of the Sivalinga seen from morning to evening is undoubtedly a superb feat of the amarasilpas that defies insterpretation and imitation too. It is due to this unique shadow-Chaya, the presiding deity is called Chaya Someswar. The image of divine Nandi is also a marvelous piece. There are eight mantapas in the eight directions of the temple, and the mahadwara faces the south.

The last temple dedicated to Channakesavaswamy is equally a fine specimen of superb sculpture. The annual Brahmotsava celebrated in Maghmasa is a great event in the year and lures thousands of bhaktas and kalaradhakas. A great sculptural treasure, and a miss not spiritual haven.
