Teli ka Mandir, Gwalior. The temple is dedicated to lord Vishnu and lord Shiva, dated between the early 8th & 9th century. It is an unusual #Hindu temple, as it has a rectangular sanctum instead of the typical square. It integrates the architectural elements of the Nagara style and the Valabhi prasada that looks like the Dravidian wagon-vault topped gopuram superstructure. The temple is based on a Pratihara-Gopagiri style North #Indian architecture.

The temple is a classic example of a design based on “musical harmonics” in architecture, one that Hermann Goetz called as a masterpiece of late Gupta era Indian art.
