This is one of the few temples in India dedicated to the Sun God, Surya. He drives his chariot, drawn by the seven horses of the days of the week, across the sky. He is also the only Hindu god who wears boots. There is an eleven headed and eight armed Vishnu in a niche in the south. In the west there is another unusual sculpture: a three-headed and eight armed Surya. The most interesting feature of this greatly-restored temple is the series of divine couples shown one below the other: Brahma-Brahmani, Siva-Parvati. Lakshmi-Narayana and Bhairava-Bhairavi.
