During the reign of the Mughal emperor Aurangzeb, this temple was demolished and a mosque was erected on its site using the material of the temple. The mosque was then known as Alamgiri Mosque.

This unusual ruined mosque with remains of votive pillars is situated in Udaypur, which is 90 km from Bhopal via Vidisha. Vidisha Railway Station is 53 km from Bhopal.
