Architecture


One can see the simple Nagara style evident in the temples at Jageshwar. Although the presiding deity at Jageshwar is Shiva, a strong Buddhist influence is visible in the carvings.

Most of the temples have the stone lingams and very impressive stone images around the altar. A carved doorway leads you to the square sanctum sanctorum. There is a tall curvilinear spire shikhara, surmounted by an amalaka (capstone) and a kalasha crown. Some ashtadhatu (an alloy of eight metals) images are outstanding. One of the rarest specimens in northern India, the Ekamukhalinga can also be seen here.
