It measures 29 by 27 by 35 feet and is shaped as a pyramid. Narasimha Varman
I am considered by Hultzzen to be the author of this monument. The figures of Gods and men
sculptured in the niches of the first three storeys of this Ratha, and
the lonely words inscribed in bold and flowery letters, attract our attention.
The first floor of the Ratha contains the familiar Somaskandha
group (Siva with Parvati and Subrahmanya). One special feature about the treatment of the
figure of Parvati is that she is looking at Siva instead of at the spectator as in other
similar groups. The external face of the Ratha holds in its rectangular niches images of
divinities, some of which are unfinished and some unidentifiable.
