MAHADEVA TEMPLE - TIMBER CARVINGS - POST 4

January 23, 2020

The exquisite timber carvings of the temple complex are done by master craftsmen. Padippura’s (entrance gate) gable has carvings. The timber carving of the gable resembles a small door and is flanked by two Dwarapalakas on both the sides.

 

The ten incarnations of lord Vishnu overlooks one from above making the ceiling to resemble a piece of heavens. The carvings of lotus remind one of Padmanabhan or the lotus bearer himself.
