Devotees come to worship the Dattatreya, a trinity of Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva. Look closely at the carvings and notice vivid sexual graphics and erotic decorations carved in the wood and the gilded metal. Entrance to the inside of the temple for non Hindus is forbidden, but souvenir shops and a museum can be found nearby.
