SIBSAGAR

2.THE SIB DOL

From the point of artistic merit, the Sib Dol occupies an important place in the artistic history of Assam. Situated on the bank of the Sibsagar tank, the Sib Dol occupies an area of four and a half acres. The temple belongs to the dvaikuta class, consisting of two cells, a garbhagriha and a mandapa. Over the garbhagriha rises the Sikhara with fluted vertical lines. Its replicas called Uramanjari surround the main Sikhara.

There are two more temples on the bank of the same tank. They are the Vishnu temple with a height of forty cubits and occupying an area of three acres and the Devi temple also with a height of forty cubits and occupying an area of about two and a half acres.
