|Description:||Thus called on account of the many pillars which decorate the entrance of a mandapa and which are the most perfect type of the Vijayanagara style. The horses rear over the figures of enemies or of wild animals fighting against armed men. The vimana or the gopuram of a temple is represented above each group which rests on a high base decorated with various scenes. The art is beginning to crystallise into a formalism which is no longer religious but dynastic before starting to degenerate.|
