Basement of Palace

This large and ornate granite base (27 m x 18 m x 1.5 m), generally believed to represent the remains of a royal palace, and is about 137 meters south-west of the Mahanavami-dibba. A flight of steps and the remnants of an elephant-balustrade, in green chlorite, on the north show that the building originally faced north. The base consists of an ornate Adhishthana with finely-sculptured friezes of elephants, horses and dancers.
