This basti representing a temple was built by Boppa Deva, son of Gangaraja, during the reign of Hoysala Vishnuvardhana in 1133 AD. The construction and consecration of the temple coincided with the victory of the ruler and the birth of Narasimha I as royal heir to the throne, thereby the deity being named as Vijaya Parsvanatha. Built in north-south orientation, the temple has on plan a sanctum housing 18' tall Parsvanatha Tirthankara, an ardhamandapa, a mahamandapa which has highly polished lathe-turned pillars and a separate pillared mandapa in front. Austere to the faith the temple in its elevation has slender pilasters breaking the monotony over the typical moulded adhisthana. The pillared mandapa in front supports at the centre an ornate sunken Ceiling with the sculpture of Yaksha Dharanendra which is repeated in the mahamandapa as well. Well sculptured Yaksha and Yakshi sculptures are placed against the western wall of the mahamandapa.
