There is a narrow mantapa in the western part of the courtyard
touching the second or inner gopura. It has on the north and south two rows of five pillars each, those in the inner row having one pillaret projecting. In the Centre of the mantapa are the Dhvajastambha and Balipitha.
The remaining part of the outer courtyard on the south, west and north seems to have-contained originally long pillared verandahs, subsequently converted into a number of rooms.
