Latina is the most common type northern Indian Shikhara (tower or spire on top of a shrine), comprising a single curvilinear projection formed by superimposing horizontal slabs of stone. The two variant and more elaborate northern Indian towers; the Sekhari and the Bhumija towers are based on the Latina plan.
