The 108 steps leading from the basement to the Garbha Gruha symbolizes 108 names of Lord Krishna chanted through Sri Krishna Ashtotthara. The sacred idol of Chaturbhuja Mahavishnu the original form of Krishnavatara sitting in the Garbha Gruha, is carved out of black granite by the reputed sculpturer Sri Shyam Sundar Badekkila at Mysore.
