The main shrine houses a stone images of Ram, Laxman and Sita but the presence of the figure of Shiva at the centre gives a presumption that the temple was orignally dedicated to Shiva.
The entire temple complex is situated on a hill and provides spectacular views of the terrains beyond. Premises of the rock cut temples also boast of a rectangular water pond, which is considered auspicious by hindu devotees. Spectacular views of the snow peaked Dhauladhar range is simply mesmerizing.
