The main portion of the structure is the large hemispherical dome (anda) surmounted by a square railed platform (harmika
) in the center of which is a pole (vasti) from which ascend a series of parasols (cattravali).
(39) O estupa possui cilindro e faixa com motivo de vedika ao redor; domo hemisferico e um harmika

Included here as well is a discussion, illustrated with drawings, of how these reliefs were attached to the architecture, which reads well with the eighth section, on architectural elements (pegs, brackets, capitals, harmika
, and chattra).
Their discussion focuses on such features as the figures representing the four maharajas (the guardians of the cardinal directions) on the harmika
, the braces supporting the chattras atop the stupa, the floral decorations on the base, and the square base with three levels.
