Architecture of Khajuraho temples with the antarala between the shikhara and the mandapas

Antarala is a small antechamber or foyer between the garbhagriha (shrine) and the mandapa, more typical of north Indian temples.

Antarala are commonly seen in Chalukyan Style temples in which the 'Vimana' and the 'Mandapa' are connected through the 'Antarala'[1]
