The area formed part of Gangawadi-96000 and was a flourishing agrahara under the Hoysalas of Dwarasamudra. This Hoysala period temple, datable to circa 12th century AD, is entirely built of soapstone. The temple has a garbhagriha of star-shape, an antarala and a navaranga with an entrance on the south. In elevation, this temple is similar to Channakesava temple at the same place. The temple is known for beautiful ornate Ceilings of the navaranga, animated friezes, adhisthana, wall sculptures and lathe-turned pillars of the navaranga, which are typical examples of the art and architecture of the Hoysala style.
