Though the temple is dedicated the Goddess Laxmi, there is no idol of the Goddess kept inside the temple.

History of Laxminarayan Temple :
Vir Singh Deo had built the beautiful Laxmi Narayan Temple around 1622 But due to inadequate maintenance, the condition of the temple soon worsened. It was reconstructed by Prithvi Singh during 1793. This temple was dedicated to Goddess of wealth, Laxmi, and within the inner chambers of the temple, Vir Singh made arrangements for offering sacrifices for Laxmi.
Description of Laxminarayan Temple :

The Laxminarayan Temple in Orcha is built in an exceptional blend of temple and fort architecture, with the help of lime mortar and bricks. There are frescos and paintings within the walls of the temple that are a blend of Mughul and Bundel forms of art. These frescos illustrate certain social and secular themes. The vivacious colors of the frescos are still retained. Within the Laxminarayan temple, the carvings are displayed in a geometrical pattern and there are scenes from the life of Lord Krishna, adorned with flowers and animals.
