Dedicated to the Hindu God Shiva, this temple is highly revered and visited by thousands of devotees. It was constructed by the Kalyan Chalukyas in 1112 A.D. and has such fine and intricate carvings that the stone seems delicate. The sculpted idol especially looks life-like and divine. The premises comprise of the shrine (cella), a hall (mantapa) and the connecting vestibule. The main hall at the Mahadeva Temple has 64 pillars out of which 24 support the ceiling and the others are half-pillars.
