The finest example in composite design in the Indo-Aryan Temple style
The Kendariya Mahadeo temple is the finest example in Indo-Aryan temple style because of its attainment of unity in design of its components such as mandapas. It becomes a composite design in plan and exterior profile. It results into overall jagged profile of mostly revered Kailash. The raised platform on which the temples stands in itself becomes dominant feature of the composition. The great flight of steps gives one a sense of arrival in higher ritualistic sense also.
