The image shows the west side of the temple surrounding the garbagriha (inner sanctum). As you can see from the image, there is a two-storied mini-shrine at the center.

The star-shaped roof is supported by pillars on the right and left of this mini shrine with sculptural reliefs. The temple is built on a platform named Jagati, which is also star-shaped.

There is a small shrine built on the floor exactly at the center.
