In the inner hall, the idol of Keshava sculpted in pashan (black stone). The idol is in standing posture and has a conch-shell in the upper right hand and a japmal (beads of a rosary) and a disc in the upper left hand and a mace in lower left hand. Surrounding the main idol, are the small figures of other gods and goddesses. Outside the math is an image of Lord Buddha in sitting position.
