5 Main parts of a Hindu Temple:
  1. Dhwaja Sthamba - Flag Pole
  2. Shikhar / Gopura - Main Tower of the temple
  3. Garba griha - Sanctum Sanctorum - which contains the main deity of the temple
  4. Hallway - for pradakshina
  5. Tanks and wells, which are either sacred or for bathing purposes.
The images of Gods/Goddesses are made either in black granite, white marble or panchalohas (five metals: gold, silver, copper, bronze & brass).
