The Laxmi Narayan Temple is one of the most revered places of the region, which was built by Raja Sahil Verman. The shrine, constructed in the 10th century, is devoted to the Vaishnavite sect. The main attraction of the temple includes the wooden chattries, which are built with regard to dynamic climatic conditions. The other highlights of the shrine are shikara, a sanctum sanctorum (Garbhagriha) along with an ‘antarala’ and a ‘mantapa’.The shrine houses a metallic image of Garuda, ‘vahanam’ (mount) of Lord Vishnu. This image on the dwajastamba pillar at the entrance grabs the attention of tourists. In later developments, Raja Chhatra Singh ornamented the shrine roof with gold plated pinnacles in 1678. The roof was destroyed by the Mughal ruler Aurangzeb.
