The temple was originally built as a Hindu temple although it was re-purposed for use as a Buddhist temple in the 16th Century. The most interesting features of the temple are the reliefs depicting Hindu deities Shiva, Brahma, Ganesh, Vishnu and several devas, who are benign mystical beings from Hindu mythology.
