Photographer's Note

This is the face of the northeast shrine at the base of the steps from ground level, and at the top of the stepped corridor down. Decoration is rampant but I would point out the horizontal panel at the bottom of the balcony. This is Hindu-themed with elephants, horses and humans included in the display. It is to be noted that the decoration on the pillar to the left in the photograph is much more elaborate, since this pillar is considered a part of the corridor. The pillar to the right is simpler and serves as visual preparation for the feast ahead. Through the window can be seen a stringed course on the eastern wall which continues along the northern. Otherwise the interior of the shrine is bare.
