The two wonderfully sculpted statues that stand on either side of the delicately carved gateway ooze splendour. The lingam stands 7.5 feet tall and has a circumference of 17.8 feet. The architectural beauty of the lingam and the platform, set upon a gigantic platform and formed of three overlaying limestone stones, creates a one-of-a-kind appearance.
