Title: Tirunavanai Kovil: Jambukesvara, Nayaka pillar
Author(s): Frederic, Louis
Photographer: Arthur Llewellyn Basham
Keywords: Nayaka Dynasty;architecture;stone sculpture;book scan
Series/Report no.: Basham Collection
Description: The shaft is proportionately short but the capital assumes enormous proportions and divides into arms and brackets decorated with fantastic beasts and tear-drop pendentives. These gigantic pillars actually support nothing. The roof is flat and is usually formed of slabs of stone laid side by side or, as here, of corrugated iron.
