Built during the reign of Ahom king Rudra Singha (AD 1696-14) and dedicated to Lord Vishnu, Bishnudol is popularly known as the Kesavanarayan or Joydol Temple. It stands on the eastern extremity of the northern bank of the Joysagar tank which was excavated in memory of his mother Joymati. The temple proper has an octagonal Garbhagriha or sanctum sanctorum adorned by a dome like structure and decorated with honey- comb designs and lotus medallions. The external walls of the main temple are also beautifully decorated with stone plaques richly carved with figures of various Brahmanical divinities including incarnation forms of Vishnu. On the western side a square mandapa is provided. A small brick structure adjacent to the main sanctum was meant for kitchen house or bhog-ghar. There are two small temples lying behind the main shrine and are known as Surya and Ganesha temple respectively.
