Chaturbhuj (means four-armed), is dedicated to the four-armed deity. The temple has plenty of light and space inside, a feature unusual for a Hindu temple.

The design was a bold concept and as enormous as any European cathedral. While earlier temples had fairly small enclosures, the Chaturbhuj Temple has a huge cross-shaped congregation hall that caters to devotees of the Krishna-Bhakti cult.
