MAHADEVA TEMPLE - ROOFING MATERIALS - POST 5

January 25, 2020

The roof is made out of timber in traditional Kerala style. Mangalore tiles have been used as the roof covering. The main Srikoil (sanctum sanctorum) roof is with copper sheets. Now this is also in need of repair.

 

The gable has detailed carvings while columns have a shaft and a base. The roof has timber purlins and rafters to support either the Mangalore tiles or the copper sheets.
