available plinth of the garbhagriha measuring 3 feet in height was all plain save
the medial recesses. The bot tom of the outlet which was 5 feet 11 inches higher
than the outsid ground level was the first floor-level inside the garbhagriha.
Between this and the ground-level, the core of the filling consisted of Kanjur stone
