Orissan Temple Architecture

Title:Orissan Temple Architecture
Author:Bose, Nirmal Kumar
Enumeration:Vol. 8 Issue no. 4; September 1955, p. 32-33
Abstract:The two parts of a characteristic temples in Orissa are the vimana (sanctuary) and the jagamohana (from where pilgrims glimpse the idol). Orissan temples have undergone considerable modifications in the course of time: the oldest temples were without a jagamohana; the Parasuramesvar temple in Bhubaneswar has a jagamohana with a rectangular ground-plan; and an increase in the height of the rekha brought in a square ground-plan. The ground-plan of later Orissan temples -- Konarak, and later additions to the Puri and Bhubaneswar temples -- shows the influence of the south.
