The picture in the bas-relief It is also found here of Vali worshipping Shiva.

The huge statues of Dwarapalakas at the entrance to Ardha Mandapa are very appealing. Adjacent to Dwarapalakas there is also a small Ganesha idole. The entrance to Maha Mandapa is adorned with his two Ganesha consorts, Subramanya and very small Sastha idols.

The pictures of the niche, Ganesha, Dakshinamurti, another Ganesha, Lingodbhava, Ardha Nareeswarar, Brahma, and Durga on the main shrine’s exterior wall are mind-blowing. Ardha Nareeswarar ‘s picture particularly is inexplicably beautiful. Vishnu Durga’s nice picture graces us with eight Guns.
