Satyanarayana , the temple houses, a life size standing image of Visnu and four armed with Sankh, Gada and Abhaya Mudra. The image is black colour with Kirita crown on head and is very much impressive. The artistic value is very high and similar image reminds us the worship of Alaranath Bishnu image at Brahmagiri. Similar images are found in Prachi Valley and at artistic point of view can be assigned to the post 14th century as a number of such images and temples of Madhava have been constructed in the Prachi Vally. This is one of the finest specimen of Orissan images of medieval period. The Satyanarayana ‘Vratt Katha’ comprises five chapters, with clear message that the followers of Shri Satyanarayana Bhagavan must lead the life of truthfulness both in deed and words. The Katha guides the followers to treat every one with equality, love and compassion and remain free from pride and ignorance. The story goes that “ a king who out of ignorance, refused to pray God in the company of poor sheperds .He ignored their Prasad, consequently,lost his empire, family and wealth which he regained only upon performing the puja together with poor shepherd. The Satyanarayana puja performed with clear understanding and “Bhaav” channels of our mind to good thoughts, helping us overcome negative thoughts and deeds which again brought into fold the worship of Peera of Muslims and Narayana of Hindus together in this temple.
