Nandalal Mandir Bishnupur

 

The Nandalal Mandir of Bishnupur is yet another ekaratna or single dome temple which is presumed to have been built in the second half of seventeenth century(post 1650 CE). It is made of rust colored laterite and sits on on a low platform with a square base. It has Bengali style ‘chala’ or curved roof. A single tower or ‘sikhara’ rests on the roof. 

There are covered porches on all four sides around the innermost sanctuary where the murthy of the deity is kept, and there are three arched openings at each of the two adjacent sides of the temple. 

Most of the wall designs or bas-reliefs have been washed out.
