Manmatha at the main entrance
The image shows a relief depicting Manmatha carved on the left side of the door at the main entrance to the Chennakeshava Temple. Manmatha, who is known by many names, including Kamadeva, is the son of Vishnu and the Hindu god of love.
As you can see from the image, Manmatha is standing elegantly with the Tribhanga (bent in three places) stance, holding a sugarcane bow with his left hand and the floral arrows with his right hand. He is wearing a variety of jewelry, including necklaces, anklets, armbands, and udiyana (waistband).
The relief depicting his wife Rathi is carved on the right side of the door.
