KHANDOBA - JEJURI

The temple consists of a square garbhagriha and a square mandap of the open variety. These are enclosed in a rectangular courtyard surrounded by pillared aisles. Both the garbhagriha and mandap are square on plan. The shrine has recesses and the offsets both vertical and horizontal. The mandap has a stone asana all round. The pillars are of the Yadav order and the ceilings are trebeate. The rectangular courtyard is surrounded by pillared aisles and arcades. There are several dipmalas and arched gateways around the temple, The verandah on the north of the temple has crude pillars of the Yadav order.

The temple has three distinct shikhars. The most prominent is the one on the main shrine, the second one covering the antarala and the third one is right in the course of the mandap. Immediately above the shrine a sprare stucco platform is led up some eight feet. This platform is decorated with arched recesses and on the corners are cypress pillars. Above this is a band of lotus bud design so common to all Maratha works. Upon this platform is the main shikhar a step like structure with nine tiers. The plan is polygonal. A fluted stucco amalaka and kalash surmount the shikhar. Each tier of the shikhar is decorated with recessed arched niches. on the four corners are four small stucco minarets. Many of the niches contain figures of gods and goddesses and other personalities who wear the characteristic pagdi, the long flowing angarkha, dhoti and surwar and the prominent moustache of a Maratha warrior.
