First comes the east-facing sanctum of Kannika Prameswari followed by that of Lord Krishna as Venugopala. He is seen with his consorts Rukmini and Satyabhama. All the shrines and the sanctum sanctorum are situated in a single prakaram. On the north side of the prakaram is a very deep temple tank with water only at the bottom.
