dc.descriptionIn the middle of the lintel, supported by a dwarf, sits Siva, whose linga, of polished stone, is installed in the centre of the cella. To right and left are different deities, separated by colonnettes. The uprights of the door are decorated with pairs of figures. The frieze of the step shows the gods Ganesa and Visnu and couples in erotic postures. The whole is rich but the proliferation of sculptures shows no sign of confusion, each motif having its set place in an architecturally determined frame.
