Discovered at Kampung Bendang Dalam Merbok in the 1960s, this temple structure is situated to the west of Sungai Bujang.
Research and excavation works were later carried out in 1974, 1976 and 1981 by the Department of Museum and Antiquities. With Hindu influences prevalent throughout the temple, its structure such as the Vimana (6.75 meters x 6.25 meters) and the Mandapa (6.75 meters x 6.20 meters) were built using laterite, devoid of foundation. The structure is estimated to have been built during the 12th to 13th century.
Visitors can use public transportation, buses and taxis, to get to Bandar Sungai Petani.
