The oldest brick temple in Bishnupur, Rasmancha has unique structure and is the only temple of its kind in India. Built by Malla King Bir Hambir in 1600 CE, the temple has only one chamber, the sanctum sanctorum, with an elongated tower encircled by turrets which are of hut shapes. It is enclosed by a passageway and there are some big cannons which date back to Malla period.

During the festival of Vaishnava Ras, all the idols of Radha Krishna of Bishnupur region used to be bought here to be worshipped by the people. The festival is no longer held now; it was held till 1932 and then stopped. Moreover, Rasmancha is no longer a temple today; it is a protected monument now.
