Blessed With Intricate Embellishments

The statues include a particularly fine one of the Goddess Ganga. The various temples at Babor include the richly and tastefully decorated temple of Devi with its numerous miniature medallions, depicting attractively carved Gods and Goddesses and celestial dancers and musicians.

Decors Of Shiva Temple
The Shiva temple has sculptured panels of geese, bulls and floral carvings, a frieze with two armed cavaliers drawing their bows and another of the God Narasimha. Another frieze shows Krishna playing the flute with two attendants waving palm frond fans and Lord Vishnu reclining.
