This pilgrim site was constructed during the 14th century in the Vijayanagar architectural style. The kalayana mantapa lies inside this site and its pillars are embellished with intricate carvings.

The carvings found on these pillars resemble Chinese, European and Thai architectural styles. The top section of the kalayana mantapa had been designed in Chinese style. This amalgamation of architectural styles of India and foreign lands at Someswara Temple displays the importance of trade during the Vijayanagar Empire.
