The site of Avantipur has two very significant shrines of ancient Hindu Gods. While the main temple has the deity of Lord Shiva, the deity of Lord Vishnu is located in Avantiswami which is half a mile away from Avantipuram. Both reflect the significance of the place in ancient India. The temples of the Avantipur represent the ancient stone architecture which has now turned into ruins. The temple is decorated with the ancient stone sculpture of both male and female figures. Along with main shrine the temple also includes the deities of few subsidiary gods and goddesses which are assembled in the temple. The sculptures are mainly found either on the entrance wall or on the flank walls of staircases. These temples mainly rested on a flat block. This was a major part of architecture in ancient India. The temple of Avantiswami which is dedicated to Lord Vishnu is better preserved which clearly reflect the art and architecture of ancient India.
