TEMPLES IN TEZPUR DISTRICT

If the height of the stone doorframe of the main entrance to the sanctum was 15' then the height of the interior of the chamber must have been 20'-25, leaving us to imagine the total height of the spire or sikhara of the original temple, which must have been considerably over 100'. The majority of the carved stones in the public park at Tezpur are taken from the plinth mouldings and string-courses of the gigantic temple, the door-frames of which have been described above.

The string-courses were ornamented with kirtimukhas of various shapes and sizes and sunken panels containing ornamental rosettes and meandering creepers. Some of them are evidently portions ofenormous capitals, which were held together by metal clamps or dowels. In the centre of some of these pieces there is a projecting niche flanked by round pilasters containing divine figures.
