Title: Temple of Galaganatha
Author(s): Frederic, Louis
Photographer: Arthur Llewellyn Basham
Keywords: Deccan-- Chalukya Dynasty-- Pattadakal;architecture;book scan
Series/Report no.: Basham Collection
Description: This temple, a little later than the preceding one, has a fully developed sikhara. The kudu has disappeared from the façade
the amalaka already shows the form which it was later to keep. Unfortunately the mandapa has collapsed and only the stone Nandin, in a mutilated condition, remains as proof that this sanctuary was dedicated to Siva. On the sikhara a multitude of kudus of various sorts can be seen which combine with the general decoration.
