The shikara normally refers to the superstructure of the Garbhagruha (sanctum sanctorum) and is the most important part of the temple. Shikhara draws cosmic energies into the garbhagruha and floods it with divinity. The shape of Shikhara influences the flow of energy from the universe and this energy helps in enhancing the overall quality of our life.
Shikaras can be square, circular, hexagonal (6 sides) or octagonal (8 sides) in shape. Among several styles of Sikharas that exists in Hindu Temple architecture, the three most common ones are the "Dravidian" style prevalent in Southern India and the "Nagar" style prevalent almost everywhere else and the third style born from the synthesis of the other two called the "Vesara" style, seen mostly in Karnataka.
