  • Parvati temple dedicated to the goddess Parvati, the consort of Shiva. This is probably the most nondescript shrine from all that are included in the complex. The porch is completely lost, and the sanctuary is preserved only a plinth. In the arch over the door of the sanctuary depicts a sculpture of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. Erotic sculptures can be seen only on the front wall on the side and rear walls no sculptures. White walls knocked out from "the common concept of" complex.
