This shrine still stands to give ocular demonstration of this narrative, though, sooth to say,its appearance would indicate aless remote antiquity and a morecommon place origin. It differs neither in size nor other essentials from the temples, which swarm in our larger cities, and its style of architecture is decidedly modern. No inscription exists on the central building, but a tablet let into the pediment of an outwork on the north-east records the fact that this portion of the edifice was erected by one Darpanarayan in the year Shalivahana 1683, i.e., 1761 A.D.
Two other stones inserted in an interior wall east of the temple give the names of two brothers named Hatambar and Taralasara, and a third bears the date of 1677 Shalivahana or 1755 A.D., but is otherwise illegible. These annexes are to all appearances as old as Viswakarma's alleged handiwork, and it is doubtful if any portion of the buildings, as they stand, dates further back than the commencement of the 18th century. Their purlieus are more interesting. They consist of streets upon streets of deva in graven stone,erected from time to time by wealthy worshippers.
