TEMPLES IN TEZPUR DISTRICT

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. The panel on the left contains a standing figure of Brahma in the central niche with an attendant on each side.

The central' panel is occupied by a figure of Surya with two attendants while the panel on the extreme right contains a standing figure of Siva with an-attendant in each of the side niches. The space between these raised panels is divided into six niches, three to the left of the central panel and three to the right. They contain six, divine figures which cannot be identified. All the niches are separated from each other by a round pilaster 2' in height, the height of the lintel itself being 2' 7 1/2".
