Located on a lofty hill the temple is an imposing structure locally known as Bara Aditya or the great Sun God. The main temple is surrounded by a paved enclosure. There are 44 subsidiary shrines around the main temple. The main shrine facing east consists of a garbhagriha and a mandapa. The sanctum has a curvilinear elevation while the mandapa is covered with a gabled roof, and apparently is a later addition. The sanctum is tri-ratha on plan though the projections are not pronounced. Stylistically, the temple can be dated to circa A.D. twelfth - thirteenth century.
