Erotic Animal Temple

On the left just before the entrance way to the square is a Hiti (water tank). A few steps before that, but on the south side of the road, perhaps 100m before the entrance way, is a tiny double roofed Shiva- Parvati temple with some erotic carvings on its temple struts. One of these shows a pair of copulating animals. This temple is little shorter than other temples around.
