Description of the photo
This side of the pillar has a dancing girl exactly opposite of the north side. She is in Avahittha Sthana. Rest of the description stays same but opposite.
Kumbakonam is considered as one of the holiest places in Tamil Nadu and is known for its temples and Mathas (monasteries which were centres of Brahmanical learning). These photographs depict the connection between the sculptures in the temples and Natya Shastra and related texts dealing with iconography.
