Squirrel: Hello hooman! Good to see you here in Bhuvaneswar.
Hooman: Hey squirrel! It's great meeting you.
Squirrel: Hooman it's Rocky. All squirrels call me Rocky.
Hooman: Rocky, then I'm Tinku. All humans call me Tinku.
Rocky: Hi Tinku, so what made you come here?
Tinku: Visiting the temples in Odisha state but very little do I know about them.
Rocky: Then you came to the right living being. Our families have been living here for 1000 years since it's construction began.
Tinku: A thousand years!
Rocky: Ohh boy! You are in for more surprises today. In Odia, the main shrine is called deula. The shape of this deula is what makes the temples in Odisha stand out from the rest of the world. The upper portion of deula is shaped in the form of goose berry (usirikay in Telugu).
Rocky: In Kalinga architecture, temple is divided into two parts. The tower, called deula and the hall called jagmohana. All the walls are lavishly sculpted with figures using different themes. Jagannath temple in Puri and Sun temple in Konark display the grandeur in this style of architecture.
Tinku: Thank you Rocky for this information.
Rocky: You're welcome and Tinku can you take a photo of me with that temple. Make sure I don't look fat.
