This Lord Shiva temple, also known as Gangoli ka Shivala, was constructed by Tiwari Ganga Prasad (Nick Name Gangoli). He was the native of Agra. The cost of construction in 1800 AD was about 1.25 lakh. The stone carving work of the temple is worth admiring. Many miniatures of different gods and scenes from various mythological stories have been carved out on the pillars & walls of the temple which look magnificent. One school is also running inside the premises.
