This temple, situated in the middle of a massive pond, presently houses the world’s second largest Idol of Lord Vishnu. During the Gupta dynasty, the idol was fashioned of Black Granite. Since many years, a section of the Idol has been seen on the banks of the same pond where this temple is currently built. But, after years of mistaking it for a normal black stone, it was finally discovered in 1992 to reveal that it was the second tallest Idol ever built, standing 7.5 feet tall ( The largest one being the Idol of Lord Venkateshwara, standing 9 feet high, in the Balaji Temple, Tirupati, AP.) The people of adjacent villages such as Saamas, KutubChak, and others are religiously interested in the construction of a grand temple with the assistance of the State Government and other authorities.
