History
This temple was originally built by the Vishwakarma, on the directions of Lord Parshurama. It was destroyed two times, once because of a fire and another time because of the attack of Tipu Sultan. The attack of Tipu Sultan resulted in breaking of idol that stood 6 feet tall, but still the idol wasn't destroyed. The temple was rebuilt in 968 AD on the directions and the measurement provided by the Shilpis with the help of Deshams. The current version is said to be a miniature version of what was earlier established. There is a 6 feet tall idol standing in a compound wall that is 12 feet tall. This wall is said to be a rare temple architectural piece of Kara.
