Nagara architectural style follows the practice of not using iron anywhere in the construction. One of the three architectural styles of Hinduism in North India, the Nagara style is associated with the region between the Vindhyas and the Himalayas. This style can be seen in temples like Khajuraho Temple, Somnath Temple and Sun Temple in Konark. Its construction is to resist earthquakes. An ancient well can be seen right next to the temple. Its name is Sita Coop. It is believed that this well has been here since ancient times. On the north side of the temple is the temple of Goddess Annapurna and on the south side is the temple of Hanuman.
