** The architecture, style and sculpture of temples has been taken full attention. There are some chapters which can be easily understood the different parts of temples and the situation of idols by reading.
**Hadauti failed to publish its available heritage despite being rich from Pura Sampada. History writing was also written under the protection of dynasty, this region got neglected. Once been a part of Malwa and in the afterlife, living under the dominance of various Rajput dynasty is currently the far southern east end of Rajasthan.
Hadauti remained a border area under various Rajput dynasty from prehistoric period to Nagavansh, Prathihar, Parmar, Sur, Mughal descendants. These priceless heritages were discovered by some enthusiastic British explorers with the establishment of the Department of Archaeology in the late nineteenth century but lacked discrimination of their historical, archaeological and artistic aspects. Which used to disturb their serious leaders and curious ones.
