|Description:||The curvilinear sikhara, consolidated in the definition of its parts, rises above a hall-temple in which the sanctuary is at [the] western end. Here as in all vimanas preceded by a mandapa, a door framed by a series of jambs enriched with symbolic sculptures, leads into the mandapa|
a second door, coaxial with the outer door and richer as a rule in framing sculpture leads from mandapa to garbhagriha. Its place within the building is in continuation of the east face of the sikhara.
