As we are approaching the New Year, we may like to look through the window to see what to expect in 2018. Similarly, we may also look through the window to see our past events and experiences. So, I thought, the theme of this post could be ‘Windows from various monuments’.
Kailasanatha temple built in 7 C.CE by Rajasimha Pallava is perhaps the oldest temple in Kanchi.
The Jura hareswara temple at Kanchipuram is a Chola temple of the 10th C.CE. It is a comparitively small temple. Though situated on the main road in the city, one may miss this unless you are looking out for it.
The 10th Century Mukteswar temple in Bhubaneswar is one of the temples which started a new trend in Kalinga temple architecture.
Parasurameswara temple, Bhubaneswar, Odisha
Built in the 7th century, Parasurameswara temple is one of the oldest surviving temples in Bhubaneswar, Odisha. Note this artistic window where the louvres are designed around the dancers.
Another window from the same temple is below.
The 11th Century Rajarani temple in Bhubaneswar is noted for some exquisite carvings.
