|Hindu temples were not meant for
large congregational worship. Pillared Mandapas with elaborate sculptures,
sadas for dancing & wide circumbulating passages with other deities
placed around the main deity constitute a temple complex.
The prominent forms of temple designs are the North Indian Temples & Southern Indian Temples. There were changes in styles, but certain basic rules fundamental to Hinduism were followed regarding the position of the garba griha, directions of the other deities, etc.
