Teli Ka Mandir has an unusual rectangular santum sitting on jagati platform. Above the 35m ornate doorway, there is a decorative relief of Garuda, the ride of Lord Vishnu. Several inscriptions found in the entrance and panels suggest that the temple was under the influence of Shaiva, Shakta and Vaishnava tradition at different periods of time. Influence of Buddhist architecture can also be found inside the temple complex. Marks of extensive damage and change depict its history of being invaded by Muslim plunderers which was later restored by the Hindu Maratha rulers to quite an extent. Major Keith, an officer of the Royal Scots Regiment initiated repair work of the ancient temple in 1881 to 1883 from its ruins.
