Uttareshwar Temple

This temple found on the northern bank of the Bindu Sarovara is one of the innumerable smaller temples dotting the four sides of the holy tank. Among its many images of the parsvadevatas (the secondary gods) the image of Kartikeya provides an interesting variation in the plasticity of modeling. The deity stands holding a spear in his left hand; his right hand; akimbo. There is no sign of the mount, the peacock anywhere.
