This temple built during the Ganga period is assignable to the 9th century AD. An inscription engraved on two slabs to the south of the temple refers to Hoysala Viraballala III and certain grants made by him to the god Ramanatha Deva of Narasamangala. The temple facing east has a spacious garbhagriha, a narrow ardhamandapa and mahamandapa. The sikhara over the garbhagriha is a unique creation possessing a brick and stucco Vimana of great beauty and artistic merit, eleven meters high over a lofty stone adhisthana, two meters high. It is a tritala Dravida vimana. The navaranga ceiling has Nataraja surrounded by dikpalas. One of the striking images here is that of a king seated in state and his queen standing beside him. Behind the temple in a hall are placed life size saptamatrika images. They are exquisitely carved, beautiful and remarkable for their workmanship.
