From the shape and the skill with which the idol is made, the latter is believed to be of King Samprati’s period. On the idols in the temple, there are inscriptions dated 16th Vikram century. In “Patan Chaitya Paripati” of 17th Vikram century, the shrine of Kamboi is mentioned. The village of Kamboi has been referred to in an inscription on one metal idol dated Vikram year 1638. The last renovations on the temple were carried out in Vikram year 2003.
