Shrine Door Frame (detail)

Udayagiri Buddhist Monastery
Orissa, near Ratnagiri

The decorations here are very similar to those at nearby Ratnagiri. While the quality of carving at Ratnagiri seems much higher, every design element seen in this photo – the acrobats climbing foliage, the surasundari between two pillars, the pot motif directly below her, the naga, and the miniaturized dvarapala – can also be found at the Ratnagiri site.
