Keywords: Deccan-- Chalukya Dynasty-- Aihole;architecture;book scan
Series/Report no.: Basham Collection
Description: This temple has plain walls
sanctuary and hall are one by juxtaposition and contrast. The temple lacks high plinth and projections. The superstructure shows seven slabs with intervening wall space. The slabs are carved with Gavaksa motifs. Each wall is a series of recessed niches. This 'seven-storeyed' superstructure [is] surmounted by a relatively high neck of the central shaft, and an amalaka. Its curvilinear shape carries simulated 'storeys'. The temples of SW Deccan from 6th-8th cent. show an interchange of themes of collateral styles.
