In ancient times the worship of Sun god was in vogue and the people were accustomed to the worship of two Supreme deities--one mother Earth as " Dharitri Maata " and the other the Sun, the " Dharam devata ". Sun god is regarded as the supreme lord of the universe and the prime object of life-giving energy, being the healer of diseases and the bestower of desires.

The temple that exists today was partially restored by the conservation efforts of British India-era archaeological teams.
