The roof of the mandapa has fallen in and the elaborately carved, polished granite pillars of the mandapam have been removed to the State Museum in Hyderabad. The columns have lathe turned capitals with richly carved polygonal sections in the middle, and plain square bases. The ceiling is an ornate composition of various Saivite dieties.
