The Satrughaneswar temple belongs to the 6th century A.D. group of temples. Although the initial existing temple, the Satrughaneswar, is established to be a mature conception. The origins of the monument apparently lay further back. It represents a Sikhara temple and its shape as available now after restoration and a few sculptures that still exist on the, deliver similarity with those of the Dasavatara temple at Deogarh. The sculptures of the Satruganeswar are marked by the dynamism & energy of the designs recalling the best characteristics of the Post-Gupta Art.
The ruined temple of Laxmaneswar standing by its side appears to be a closely analogus monument in shape as well as form and seems to be an immediate successor of the Satrughaneswar.
