Temple Architecture of Orissa

N.C. Panda (Editor) K.M. Suresh (Editor)

The Orissan temple architecture ranging from seventh century to thirteenth century A.D., however corresponds to an altogether different category for their unique representations called Kalingan style of temple architecture. Though, broadly they come under the Northern or Nagara style, they have certain special features which are uniquely their own. The Orissan temples are of three types, viz. (i) Rekha Deula, (ii) Khakhara Deula, and (iii) Pidha or Bhadra Deula. The temples of Orissa exhibit a majestic grandeur. An Orissan temple (deula) usually consists of a sanctum, one or several front proches (jagamahana) usually with pyramidal roofs, a dancing hall (Nata-mandira) and a hall of offerings, i.e. bhoga-mandira.

This book mainly contains three chapters. The first chapters speaks about the temples of Bhubaneswar. The second chapter describes the temples of Puri and the third chapter elaborates the features and importance of Konark Sun temple in detail. However, the book aims at studying the Architectural aspect of the Orissan temple. The students scholars and the general readers may get detail information about the various temples of Orissa.
