TEMPLES IN TEZPUR DISTRICT

Among the images of Gods mention may first be made of a four-armed Siva as Tripurari and in dancing pose, now in Assam Provincial Museum. The image, in its two main hands holds bow and arrow. A tiara is seen on the head while circular
patra-kundalas adore the ears.

An interesting figure of Siva as Lakulisa is found carved on a caitya-window in the ruins of Dah Parbatiya. Lakulisa is usually
represented as seated on padmasana, with penis erect and a matulinga (citron fruit) in the right hand and a staff in the left. Our Lakulisa is a seated figure with a rope tied round his leg. A female is holding a cup to his left while another stands to his right.

We have given above an exhaustive account of the ruins of the Dah Parbatiya Siva temple, the oldest and the finest piec  of architectural work in Assam. It points to the fact that both architectural and sculptural skill of the Assamese craftsmen had reached its height during the period under review. In the present state of our knowledge we are not in a position to say definitely about the mode of worship at the temple, as the temple is found only in ruins.
