Jambuliṅgeśvara is another small temple in the Karnāṭa Nagara style on the site of Pattadakal and it is situated just behind the Galaganātha temple. It is built in the Karnāṭa-nāgara style.—The name Jambuliṅga is modern and there is no document on its ancient name and dedication. It shares many features with the Kāḍasiddheśvara temple, but has also clear differences, notably with some drāviḍa features. The sanctum sheltering a Liṅga has a doorway much simpler, three frames only: a slim pilaster of drāviḍa type between ratna and latā decorated bands, a lintel, the central part of which has a provision for an undone carving. It opens to the east to a less wide maṇḍapa, just a little longer, lighted by screened windows.
