|Devladi Temple, Tiuni|
|Huna Style of Architecture|
It has the similar architecture as that of the Mahasu Temple close by which is more famous and built in the Huna architectural style. If you notice in the photo above you will notice that there are five levels of the ceiling on the extreme left then four and then three closer to the entrance of the temple.
Pabbar is a distributory of Tons River which goes on to merge in Yamuna. The Pabbar river’s water, except during monsoons, are greenish in colour and have its source in the glaciers. The drive along the river is on a narrow road dotted with pine trees and is very beautiful.
|Another temple in the same style|
There are several temples spread across the area similar in style. The Panadavas, mythologically speaking, escaped from Lakhamandal and came to this region. Lakhamandal is in itself an architectural delight.
