On each side of the monster mouth doorway are banded columns and a row of ornamental masks. This photo is to the left of the central doorway.

Paul Gendrop writes: "In the wall of the façade, is a vertical panel that displays two large frontal superimposed masks representing deities which, with their striking jaws and prominent nose and brows, constitute one of the most impressive sights of the art of this region."
