Urushringa

An Urushringa (Sanskrit: उरुशृङ्ग, lit. having high peak) is a subsidiary tower pasted against the main tower (shikhara) in the Hindu temple architecture. The urushringa is lower and narrower than the shikhara. It strengthens the feeling of height given by the temple. We find them on the temple of northern India in the Nagara architecture.

On the Kandariya Mahadeva Temple in Khajuraho there are 84 urushringas around the shikhara.
