"Hindola" means "swinging" and "Torana" is for gateway seen in Hindu and Buddhist architecture of Indian subcontinent. It is actually a ornamented entrance gate of Hindu temple where Chaukhamba would have been the mandapa of that temple. It has magnificent sculptural work. Dashavataras (ten re-incarnation images) of Hindu god Vishnu are carved on the door jambs of torana.
