This village is dedicated to god Surya Dev (Sun) and deity Chhaya, the consort of Surya Dev. Carved wooden pillars and cornices decorate parts of the temple. Motifs of flowers and flower buds are beautifully carved on wood. Aedicule on walls have deities that have been made of red sandstone blackened by years of worship.
