The pillar is monolithic, consisting of a square base of 2 metres or more in height, a circular shaft (to which the diameter given above applies) 4.7 metres long, and a capital about 1 metre high. The capital is a lotus bell, with a deep narrow socket that presumably held a metal spike that in turn held a sculpture. The upper part of the base is smooth; the lower part is roughly chiselled.

The monolithic pillar is on a pedestal 4 metres square, 23 metres to the east of the general line of the Eraṇ temples, about 800 metres west of the village. By its position it seems to be connected to the small double temple marked C and D in #Cunningham_1880a:87. The lower part of the shaft is square to a height of 6 metres (width and depth dimensions above pertain to this section).

The pillar is square to the height of about 140 cm (the width and depth dimensions above pertain to this section), then octagonal for about 190 cm. The next section, about 180 cm, is sixteen-sided, and the next again, about 65 cm, is cylindrical. The next 23 cm is square again (the sides are 45 cm long here), and finally cylindrical again for 12 cm.

  1. The inscription is on the three northern faces of the octagonal section of the pillar; the bottom of the inscribed area is about 230 cm from the ground.

A monolithic column. The bottom section is 1 metre square and 135 cm high. Fleet thinks this was its original base, buried in earth, since it has no sockets to indicate that it was attached to any other masonry elements.
