The Sugandhesha temple is a smaller version of the Shankaragaurishvara temple, but better preserved. Architectural fragments are scattered throughout the temple courtyard fluted columns, bracket capitals, and broken pieces. Interestingly, King Shankaravarman is said to have started his reign well but became a tyrant, much hated by his subjects, towards the end of it. To top it all, he cannibalised the ancient capital of Kashmir, Parihaspora, to build the two Shiva temples. The legend goes that while his father&rsquos name still survives in the name of Awantipora, Shankaravarman&rsquos capital Shankarapattana is known just by the name Pattan his subjects decided to erase any memories of their hated king.
