Photograph of the entrance porch to the mandapa of the Udayeshvara Temple, Udayapur taken by Joseph David Beglar in 1871 or 1872. The Udayeshvara temple is the finest temple of the Paramara period, erected in 1080 by king Udayaditya. The temple faces east and stands on a platform approached by a stairway flanked by large Shaiva door guardians. The sanctuary and the mandapa have a stepped, almost circular plan and are decorated with remarkable sculpture panels. The superstructure is curved and has many tiers of miniature towers with arch-like motifs and is crowned by a large amalaka. This view shows the entrance porch with angled balcony slabs and overhanging eaves.
