Teli ka Mandir

Gwalior, India

Also known as the Oilman’s Fort, it is located within the Gwalior Fort. It uniquely combines the architectural styles of North India and South India, signifying that Madhya Pradesh truly is the ‘centre’ of India. A Buddhist barrel-vault roof can be seen on top of a Hindu mandir, representing North India. On the other hand, hall and torana (archway) decorations at the entrance are reminiscent of Buddhism. Images of river goddesses, romantic couples and floral decorations can be noticed on the torana. The tallest monument in this Temple is the statue of Garuda, which can be seen from quite a distance.
