The mantapa or pillared hall in front of Gommata is decorated with nine well-carved ceilings. Eight of them have figures of the ashta-dikpalakas or regents of the eight directions, while the central one has in the middle a fine figure of Indra holding a kalasha or water vessel for anointing Gommata. The ceilings are artistically executed and considering the material used, namely hard granite, the work redounds to the credit of the sculptors. From the inscription in the central ceining, it may be inferred that the hall was caused to be erected by the minister, Baladeva, in the early part of the 12th century.
