The Silparatnakosa is a seventeenth-century CE Orissan text describing all the parts of the temple and the most important temple types of Orissa, such as the Mañjusri and Khakara. It also contains a section on sculpture (Prasadamurti) and an appendix on image-making. The text, though much later than the temples described, reflects the still-living tradition and contributes much to clarify the terminology of Orissan temple architecture. It also contains interesting references to the symbolism of the temple and its elements. The most important contribution of this text, however, lies in the identification of the Mañjusri Temple with the Sricakra, which has helped to re-identify the Rajarani Temple at Bhubaneswar as a temple dedicated to Rajarajesvari in the form of a Sricakra.Printed Pages: 239.
