ON TEMPLES

Even now in the Sraddha ceremonies that we perform, the Pithris and the Viswa devas are given two different types of
asanas, the Pithris the Mandala type and the Viswa devas the Sthandila type. The Apsidal form of temple is rather rare, and only one important temple of Andhra desa namely the Kaportheswara temple of
Chejerla is built in this model. This is also probably on the Dakshinagni altar model.

As regards the style of temple architecture, there are three styles, called the Nagara, the Vesara and the Dravida types. According to the Agamas, the Nagara styles are quadrangular from the neck to the top, and the Vesara style round from the neck to the top, and the Vesara style round from the neck to the top. The temples in Andhra Desa furnish examples of all the three types of this temple architecture.
