Hinduism - Where Is The Jagamohan Temple Located?


The jagamohan is the entry porch to the temple in Orissa temple architecture, which is one of the principal styles of the northern Indian Nagara style.

It serves as a transitional area between the outer world and the holy space farther in.

The jagamohan, or major interior space, of Orissan temples tended to be low and squat, in stark contrast to the deul, or main internal area, a beehive-shaped tower under which the temple's chief god image dwelt.
