TEMPLES IN SIBSAGAR DISTRICT

3.THE DEVI DOL

The Devi Dol or the Devi temple is situated at Gaurisagar, about two and a half miles from Sibsagar. The place can be reached by bus from Sibsagar.

The Devi Dol seems to resemble the Sib Dol at Sibsagar in respect of style. In this temple the Sikhara is without the familiar amalaka in the standard pattern; instead, a tier of gold-plated kalasas in tapering sizes is placed on a solid circular base made of bricks. On the exterior walls of the temple there are bands of sculptural panels. Each panel contains a number of niches and each niche contains an image. The space in between the two panels is utilized for ornamental decoration. Staying at Sibsagar where we have the necessary facilities could see the temples of this region.
