dc.descriptionThe ratha seen here, beside the large stone elephant is the Sahadeva Ratha. The five main rathas are called after the 5 Pandava brothers and their communal wife, Draupadi, although there has never been any connection between this story and the monuments. The Sahadeva Ratha is dedicated to the twin brothers Sahadeva and Nakula and looks like a replica of a Buddhist temple with its apsidal plan and vaulted roof. According to some authors this form is derived from the stupa itself to which an awning was added to shelter the faithful.
