Sadasiva temple, an unique hybridization of the evolved Hoysala style and the diffused Yadava type of the Bhumija style was erected in 1249 AD. The temple stellate on plan, the original structure consisted of a garbhagriha, a sukanasi and a navaranga with porches and a nandi-mandapa. A big hall and a lofty mahadvara in the Dravidian style have been added towards south, stylistically datable to the Vijayanagara period. The temple proper is built on a raised indented jagati which is treated with conventional mouldings. The adhisthana proper of temple has non-ornate mouldings. The wall is indented in the region of mahamandapa and stellate in the region of sanctum. In the region of mahamandapa, an inconspicuous devakoshtha breaks the monotony of bhitti. The eave of ordinary variety is crowned by different types of turrets and the superstructure over the sanctum even though dwarfish, is a total deviation from the usual vesara style. Interestingly, bhumijastyle of nagara sikhara has adopted in tritala vimana. The ashtabhadra sikhara is composed of kutas over malas. The mahamandapa of sukanasa has a sculpture of Siva as Nataraja under kirtimukha torana.
