Thangal General Temple

The temple is located in Wangkhai locality of Imphal town. It was build by Thangal General in 1879 A.D. The temple structure is raised on a discrete platform. The plan of the base is square. The sanctum cube of the inner sanctum and the outer jacket is raised straight up from the base up to the cornice. The outer jacket wall on each side opens out with a rectangular opening to lead in front into four flying steps of staircases. This facilitates the approach to the circumambulatory path or the pradakshna path from any side. The cornice is achieved by stepping outward a few courses of brick layers to make a projection and then making a slant to the projection. The railing is made by alternate spacing and brick wall and finally giving a horizontal brick layer on colonnades gripping the corner salas. The first railing perfectly covers the terrace above the pradakshna path. The second railing is the replica of the lower railing. The octagonal dome is after the second railing. The arches converge at the base of the inverted kalasa placed at the top of the dome. Each arch line can be seen having its ridge line on the dome surface from above.
