Abstract

Description

Several different temples, dedicated to Siva, and in the same style, stand in a single group. The sikhara shown here, built in the 12th century, but reconstructed in the 13th and again in the 18th centuries, shows clearly the western style. The outsides of these temples have little decoration. Only the interiors have a decoration which varies in richness according to the temple.
