The temple is devoted to the goddess Kaila Devi. It is considered to be one of the 9 Shaktipithas of Goddess Durga. Shri Bhompalji, the king of Karauli, is believed to have received instructions from Goddess Kaila Devi to build the temple for her as he was a great devotee of Kaila Devi. In the sanctum, there are two idols. The deities are very old and made of stone.
It is a good example of medieval architecture. The shikhar of the temple is very high like a pyramid. There is an open court and a prayer hall. The walls and pillars are decorated with ornamental work. The temple stands on a rocky elevation, so the shikhar can be viewed from a distance. The mela held here is regarded as one of the biggest in North India. Every year a large number of people visit this temple.
