Around what was evidently originally a Buddhist site, with a fairly large Buddhist stūpa, and the broken remains of various Dhyāna Buddhas, placed at the quarters, there has now come up a well established Hindu temple.

Inscriptions were found here, one of which Goris (1948) transcribed as:

Ye Dharma Hetu-prabhawa /
Hentu tesantathagoto hyawadat //
Tesab ca yo nirodka /
Evam wadi mahasramanah

Also inside the stūpa is a small box containing a golden Buddha statue. This is only brought out once a year.

It is approached through the paddy fields, and at the time we went the villagers were preparing for a festival.
