Major images found in the temple, include standing image of Lokeshwore holding Lotus flower in one hand, while the other is broken off, and many stone idols. Ancient potteries are still visible on the near by mound. Excavation  carried out by the Department of Archaeology and LDT have uncovered several structural ruins and stone antiquities at these sites.
