ही मूर्ती साधारण सन ७५० ते ९७३ या कालावधीतील असावी असा अंदाज आहे. त्या काळात महाराष्ट्रात राष्ट्रकूट घराण्याचे राज्य होते. तत्कालीन राज्यकर्त्यांनी अशा पद्धतीच्या मूर्ती घडवून घेतल्याआहेत.

मंदिरात लक्ष्मी-केशव मूर्तीची स्थापना सन १५१० मध्ये भानुप्रभू तेरेदेसाई यांच्या हस्ते झाली. भानुप्रभू हे बहामनी राज्यातील सैतवडे महालातील गावांचे महालकरी होते. मंदिराच्या परिसरात श्री रत्नेश्वर आणि मारुती मंदिरे आहेत.
