Pippala Devi Temple Ossian

The Ossian Pippala Devi Temple near Jodhpur relates to the 9th century and was constructed in the early part of the century. It is a minor temple as compared to the other Ossian Temples. But still, it is worth visiting.

The temple has an open-air mandap (a platform for wedding and other rituals), with well stretched out balconies. Only a part of this mandap has still been preserved. The main attraction of the Pippala Devi Osiyan temple in Rajasthan, India is its splendid columns. However, they could not stand the test of time and have witnessed substantial damage. The other main feature of the complex is the large sabha mandap (assembly hall). It has thirty pillars dating back to the 10th century. It is still in an okay condition.
