Kampabandha (कम्पबन्ध).—A type of adhiṣṭhāna (‘pedestal’);—This adhiṣṭhāna is mentioned only in Mānasāra (verses 14.163-173). The name kampabandha for this type is given because the major mouldings of this plinth i.e. upāna, mahāpadma-jagati, kumbha, string course/paṭṭikā, kapota are alternated by prominent kampas (fillets). As a result, this becomes comparatively a taller variety of adhiṣṭhāna.
