This temple was constructed in 1204 AD by two local merchants Ahuka and Manyuka. Before the construction of this temple, there was already a temple at the same place and this is said by the inscriptions that are made in the porch of the temple.
In this temple is enshrined a Svayambhu form of Sivalinga which means that it had arisen from itself.
