Spiritual Heritage of North India

The North Indian temples have been constructed in the typical Nagara style architecture. The basic structure of temples in India is more or less the same throughout, and the same features are seen in the temples of the north as well.The sanctuary, which is the main part, is called the vimana. In the vimana, a small chamber called the garbhagriha or the inner sanctum where the divine emblem or image is kept. The part surmounting the vimana is known as the sikhara. The mandapa or pavilion for the assembly of devotees and the antarala which is a vestibule connecting the vimana and the mandapa, and the pradakshi-napath. According to the Nagara style, the temple structure consists of two main buildings. The main place of worship is taller and has an adjoining shorter mandapa. The key difference between these two is the shape of the sikhara. The sikhara of the temples in North India resembles an upturned cone that is decorated with miniature conical Shikharas. There are also some temples in North India which developed their own local flavor, setting aside their basic native style. In the main shrine, a bell shaped structure helps to increase the height of the temple. There is the kalasa at the top as in all Hindu temples. The ayudha or emblem of the presiding deity is also present. Fundamentally, there is no structural difference between the Hindu and the Jain temples in the North except that the need for housing the various Tirthankars dominates the disposition of space in the latter. Moreover, the Jain temples achieve their effect from the grouping together of a number of shrines on such high spaces as the hills can provide, and are characterised by an air of seclusion and aloofness.
