Sri.Ramaprameya / Navaneetha Krishna Temple is a beautiful temple which is still intact and protected monument.

One can find the idol of Narayana or Veera Narayan in the main Garbhagriha, the idol is a classic Hoysala master piece and is similar to any other Narayana idol with a richly decorated prabhavali, a Conch, Chakra and a Gadha in each hand.
When you start taking a pradakshina, you can find Lakshmi Devi to the right of the main temple. After you proceed a bit further, you will find the idol of Sri.Krishna in the form of a small child and is known by the name - Navaneetha Krishna.

Navaneetha Krishna is in the form of a child who is in crawling position, its the most beautiful idol which I have ever seen. The Lord is decorated with a decorated Uda dhaara(silver thread, tangled with bells around his waist) and his one hand is holding the butter and the other hand he is supporting himself while crawling.

The temple is constructed in typical Vijayanagara Style and one can find huge pillars surrounding the temple complex. Also, the whole complex is covered with stone masonary, and the Ratha Mantapa, which is outside the temple is beautifully carved in stone and is quite huge.

One can also find a Tula Bhara Mantapa just in front of the temple, which again resembles Vijayanagara style and one can compare this with the Tula Mantapa present in Nandi and Hampi as well.
