Uragabandha (उरगबन्ध).—A type of adhiṣṭhāna (‘pedestal’);—Mayamata (verses 13.21-22) mentions one type of uragabandha-adhiṣṭhāna, while Mānasāra (verses 14.23-24) mentions four types of four different heights. Uragabandha-adhiṣṭhāna, according to Mayamata, should possess two main string courses resembling a serpent’s mouth and a torus moulding. It also says that it is suitable for palaces of gods, brahmins and kings. Mānasāra states that this type of base is shaped like the face of a snake and fumished with two pratis at the top and the kumbha (pitcher torus) is circular.Source: Shodhganga: Temples of Salem region Up to 1336 AD

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family. Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
