The large Jaina temple, among the many temples at Lakkundi, is perhaps one of the earliest examples of temples in this area built of a kind of fine-textured chloritic schist as distinct from the hitherto-used sandstone of this region. The temple, perhaps built in the latter half of the eleventh century, has a five-storeyed vimana, square on plan from the base to the sikhara, and had originally a closed square navaranga in front, though an open mandapawas added in front later on. The three upper storeys are symbolic and had the suka-nasika projected in front. The kudu-ornaments on the cornices, though flat, retain their arched shape and are characterized by Simha-Mukha (lion-mask) finials.
