The Parapet

The Parapet of the Naat Mandir is formed by a series of Om kangris. The elephant railing, consisting of a herd of eight elephants, as if coming down from the heaven and are in the process of garlanding the Deity. They are placed around the Garbha Mandir on three sides. Just behind the elephant railings is the miniature Vishwakarma entrance. At the rear entrance is the Thunderbolt motif originally conceived by Sister Nivedita for the Indian National Flag.

As per Swami Vivekananda’s concept, a number of full-bloomed lotus emblems in various sizes adorn the interior and exterior of the temple.
