The temple is built out of stone except for the śikhara, which is replaced now. The adhiṣṭhāna is sub-merged in the modern flooring of the courtyard as a result of renovations. On the outer wall, to the left of the garbhagṛha, koṣṭas housing the images of Brahmā and Durga are noticed. The height of these images is about one foot tall. They have an archaic look, but they are highly eroded.
