Bhumija

Bhumija is a variety of northern Indian shikhara (tower or spire on top of a shrine) that is particularly popular in temples of western India, northern Deccan and the Malwa regions in India. It comprises a central Latina projection, tapering towards the top on all four faces. The quadrants so formed are decorated with miniature spires, in horizontal and vertical rows, all the way to the top.[1]
