This is another temple at the same place, on a smaller hill top accessible by climbing about 400 steps:


The same temple, seen from an elevated angle:


An old and beautiful structure, now not in use:


Even the back has been rendered realistic:


There was no one to explain me the significance of this, but this caught my attention:


At this age, she has broken away from her group to enjoy solitude and nature for a while:

Very interesting, Raghu. What was this place, and how old is it?

Thanks to all for the interest shown. Saly, it is believed that the temples are about 1,500 years old. The old structure could possibly have been built for the Goddess, whose idol was later shifted to the main shrine and seated in a shrine adjacent to Lord Narasimha's shrine atop the larger hill.
