Built between 9th -10th century, this extraordinary structure is undoubtedly an architectural spectacle. It has a majestic entrance gate which provides an astonishing manifestation. At the gate you can see the splendid image of two goddesses with their names inscribed near their feet.
These sentinel goddesses by the names Mahamaya and Mahalaya, in a very elegant appearance, safeguard the magnificent doorway of the temple. One can envisage the magnitude of the boundary-wall of the predictably acknowledged Mahakala-vana, which is at this time enclosed under wide inhabitation.
