The Ruins of Three Temples
This temple belongs to the 6th century A.D. group of temples. Even the earliest extant temple, the Satrughaneswar, is found to be a mature conception and origin of the monument apparently lie further back. It represents a Sikhara temple and its shape as available now after restoration and a few sculptures that still exists on the monument or have been recovered from it, supply affinities with those of the Dasavatara temple at Deogarh. The sculptures of the Satruganeswar are marked by the vigour & exuberance of the designs recalling the best characteristics of the Post-Gupta Art.

The ruined temple of Laxmaneswar standing by its side appears to be a narrowly analogus monument in shape as well as form and it seems to be an immediate successsor of the Satrughaneswar.Like the 'Svarnajalesvara' temple, the 'Kanthi' of this temple is relieved with scenes taken from mythology, of which the marriage-procession Shiva depicted on the northern side is interesting.

The theme of the lintel, however, presents a variation. The central piece of the composition is the seated figures of Shiva and Parvati, with their attendants by their sides and their mounts below, worshipped by devotees; the enshrinement of Shiva, both in his phallic and anthropomorphic forms, is represented by the two outermost panels. The extant side-niches have different forms of Shiva, like 'Nataraja', 'Hari-Hara' and the dancing 'Ardhanarisvara'.
