Three Shiva Temples in Dubrajpur, Birbhum District, Bengal - 1870

Three Shiva Temples in Dubrajpur, Birbhum District, Bengal - 1870
The central shrine is single storied, sits on a raised platform and has but one entrance. The temple is classified as a trayodassha-ratna (thirteen-pinnacled) shrine and is typical of the Dubrajpur type. It is decorated with sculptures of foliate designs and carved figures of Krishna are found on the panels, playing the flute while surrounded by adoring gopis (young cattle-tending maidens).
