The garbhagriha lies at the southern most part. It is octagonal in shape and is surrounded by a pyramidal sikhara in stucco - the spire built with two row, of niches and beautified with human figures and graceful elephants. In addition to this, there are many deities enshrined in niches and special mantaps, like Ganesh, Lakshminarayan, Kapil etc. There are eight images of Ganesh, like Vakratunda, Vikata, Haramba, Vighnesh, Balchandra, Chintamani, Siddi Vinayak, Lambodara, Mahodara and Dumravarma installed in the eight corners of the temple. Another unique feature of this temple is the installation of different images of gods at the four dwaras. At the western gate are installed the images of Rati and Kama the bestower of Kama, standing for Asat Brahm; at the northern gate Mahavaraha - the bestower of moksha standing for Sat-Brahm; Lakshmi and Narayan - the bestower of Dharma at the eastern gate standing for Vishnu Brahm, and Uma and Mahesh - the bestower of Artha at the southern gate standing for Shankar Brahm. It is believed that offering prayers to these deities each one day during the first four days of the Sukla Paksha of any month is meritorious and it is called Dwarayatra; and for full merit Bradrapada and Magh masas are advocated. Its mystical import and efficacy are so lofty and sacrosanct that people coming from distant places stay for four days and perform pujas with all the rites prescribed. There are 23 Parivar devatas in all, at several places in the campus and they are fittingly installed in niches and mandaps.
