TEMPLES IN TEZPUR DISTRICT

The lintel of the stone doorframe in the public park also belongs to the same period and most probably to the same building. It is divided into two different parts. The upper part represents five miniature temples with phallic emblems of Siva in each of them.

In the lower part we see a continuation of the ornamentation on the jambs, viz., two vertical bands containing meandering creepers and two others consisting entirely of rosettes which turn an angle and are continued on the soffit of the lintel. In the center of the lower part of the lintel is a small niche containing a miniature of Ganesha. It appears from the nature of the carvings that the temple to which these three architectural specimens belong was erected late in the tenth century A.D. The length of the lintel is 6' 10" and the breadth 1' 5 1/2.

"The second group of sculptures at Tezpur consists of specimens from a massive, temple on the ruins of which the office of the Deputy Commissioner has been built. On each side of the entrance of the Planters' Club at Tezpur lie the door sill and the lintel of the principal entrance to the enormous temple. The size of the lintel enables us to determine the size of the door-frame and consequently of the principal entrance to the sanctum. The enormous lintel, is 10' 3" in length and 1' 8" in breadth. There are three raised panels on it, one in, the centre and one on each side and each of them is divided into a large niche in the centre with a smaller one on either side.
