dc.descriptionThree tiers of relief panels correspond to the division of the wall. Each tier has 8 niches framed by pilasters and an arch surmounted by a flamboyant device. Statuesque Surasundaris occupy the high niches of the lowest tier. Narrative scenes from the Puranas or pure symbols such as the 'Life tree' fill the niches of the upper tiers. The composition is full of agitation. Porbandhar sandstone.
