Temples And Legends Of Maharastra Page7

The construction of the garbhagriha and the antarala immediately in its front belong to a still later period the dates of which are known. Also built of the same local stone, which in this case is extremely well dressed ; this portion is built on the Indo- Aryan or Northern style, on the style of the Jaina temples. The artistic embellishments of the shrine consists of conventional ornamentation on pillars and doorframes and a carved band running on the outer wall at a height of about ten feet from the ground.

The band consists of several human figures interspersed with images of some deities. These figures, especially their facial features and their costume resemble closely those of the figure sulpture on temples if the Indo- Aryan style in Maharashtra, especially from those at places like Nevase and Toke. Although simple in execution, the proportions and the shapes of various parts common to the Northern temples have bestowed a good deal of organic grace on it. Especially the curves of the shikhar are splendidly brought off and very few, examples display such graceful outline.
