Parṇakuṭīra (पर्णकुटीर) is depicted as a sculpture on the eighteenth pillar of the southern half of the maṇḍapa of the temple of Lokeśvara.—At the left end of the medallion is a parṇakuṭīra, a dwelling place built out of leaves, which is a good example of architecture. One can notice the carpentry work. A bird is on the roof of the pavilion and another is sitting on the inner beam of the frontal part. To the other end of the medallion is a tree on which are a tiger and a monkey. The tiger is so well carved one can even notice its thin moustaches. A deer is resting peacefully under the same tree. Below, where the teaching is going on is a pond with lotuses in it. By the side of it are resting two tiger like animals etc.
