The visitor can become speechless on going round the temple as it has outstanding sculptures on all the sides. The exceptionally carved sculptures include scenes from Ramayana and Mahabharatha.
Lord Amruthapureeswara's Vimanam is of Eka thala ( Eka Kuta) style whereas those at Belur and Somnathpur are of Tri kuta style. Soft clay stone is used and the temple has about 140 panels depicting the scenes of Hindu epics. The Mahamandapa has large pillars and the Sanctum has the Shiva linga murthi who is worshipped by the locals and people from outside the village.
Declaring the Heritage site as a National Monument is not suffice. The ASI must seriously consider to step up the security of the place and build a wall and post security guards by keeping vigil at all times. There is no point in giving publicity to this place as it can invite more risks and problems. This should be applicable to all ASI sites. About other temples "maintained " by the State Governments, less said , the better.
