|Title:||Temple of Galaganatha|
Photographer: Basham, Arthur Llewellyn
|Keywords:||Deccan-- Chalukya Dynasty-- Pattadakal|
|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.
