The Kāḍasiddheśvara temple is situated a few meters away from the Galaganātha and it also faces east. It is built  in the Karnāṭa-nāgara style.—The name Kāḍasiddheśvara is modern. There is no document about its ancient name and dedication, or about its date. It is the smallest and humblest of all the Nāgara structures on the site, the northernmost. It consists of a garbhagṛha sheltering a Liṅga, open to the east and a slightly wider maṇḍapa on the same axis. Both elements have a floor at the same level. There may have been a threshold, which is now lost. The level of the floor is the top of the kapota of the adhiṣṭhāna. The doorway of the sanctum is the most ornamented element of the temple.
