Now wrecks and ruins an 'Deopahar' tells us regarding this. It is said that as the old priest Narayan Kandoli was too old to climb up the hillock he brought the idol with honour to this very place where it is situated now. One British Manager probably some Humphrey built the temple and decorated with some old sculpture of ancient temple known as flying Apsara, Gajathan etc. But lack of proper care these were also destroyed . Now a new building is being built here. The specialty of this temple is that 'The Linga Murty' is on the ground while most of other ancient Siva Linga are placed under the ground in a hole. Animal sacrifices is also made here which is rare in other temples. Probably this is the influence of Kachari Kingdom.
