Namaskara Mandapam

Namaskara Mandapa

Namaskara Mandapam is an integral part of the temple architecture. It is the place where the priests and Brahmins sit and recite the hymns, mantras and slokas. The priest prostrates in this mandapam before entering the shrikovil to perform puja and other rituals. The Namaskara Mandapam is generally square shaped, with pillars supporting the roof. It is built right at the center of the Chuttambalam in front of the shrikovil. Devotees are not allowed to enter the mandapam.
