The structure has carved granite and dolerite beams and pillars, as well as a unique and pyramidal vimana composed of lightweight porous bricks, often known as 'floating bricks,' which helped to lighten the roof structures. The temple is surrounded by a serene atmosphere, making it an ideal location for chanting.
