This ancient, Chola era Temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva as Kashi Vishwanatha. There is no seperate shrine for Divine Mother.

At the top of the temple, there is a sculpture of Indra coming on an elephant. Only Ganesha is at the entrance of the temple alongside two murtis of Guru Bhagavan.

These ruins are in the forest and all the murtis are lying exposed to the sun and rain. The temple could collapse at any moment.
