TEMPLES IN TEZPUR DISTRICT

The most remarkable sculptures of the first group are two shafts of pillars at the entrance to the Planters' Club and heavy lintel of a stone door-frame now lying in the public park. The shaft of one of these pillars is sixteen sided, the upper end being ornamented with a broad band having kirtimukhas at, the top and the lower with dentils.

Over this band the shaft is round and appears, to be lathe-turned like the upper parts of the western Chalukyan columns of the Bombay Presidency. In the second pillar the upper part of the shaft is dodecagonal and near the top is divided into three raised horizontal bands two of which contain 'kirtimukhas and third a series of diamond shaped rosettes. In style, both of them belong to the same period and appear to have come from one and the same building.
