Udarabandha (उदरबन्ध) refers to a type of “decorative band” (bandha), as defined in treatises such as the Pāñcarātra, Pādmasaṃhitā and Vaikhānasa-āgamas, extensively dealing with the technical features of temple art, iconography and architecture in Vaishnavism.—Udarabandha is a piece of cloth (bandha) or a band, either flat in surface or variously decorated, which is worn (as a belt) round the belly/ over the stomach area (udara). Rao defines it as follows: “At the junction of the thorax and the abdomen also is worn a broad belt of good workmanship; it is called udarabandha”.
