In order to reach the main shrine one has to walk up 32 steps of marble stairs. The brass image of Garuda is a magnificent structure.

The four armed idol of Lord Vishnu made of black stone is placed at the main shrine surrounded by four smaller shrines dedicated to Lord Ganesha, Sun God, Goddess Shakti and Lord Shiva.Pyramidal spire, mandap and a porch are some of the fine-looking structures of the temple. The 50 pillars on the second floor of the temple are rich in carvings.
