It was originally constructed around 1100 CE, reconstructed between 1432 and 1453 CE, as per inscriptions found at site and the reconstruction shows a few vignettes of both Kadamba and Vijayanagara styles. Presently the building is not used for any social or religious purposes and has been stabilized in 2017.
