Jor-bangla, also called Yorubangala, is a style of Hindu temple architecture that arose in Bengal region of the Indian subcontinent. The style involves two skeuomorphic structures that reflect the traditional thatched huts of the region, one that serves as a porch, in front of the other that serves as a shrine. Each structure has a roof of the ek-bangla (or do-chala) style, with two curved segments that meet at a curved ridge.
- The Jor-Bangla temple in Bishnupur, Bankura, built in 1655 by King Raghunath Singha Dev. It is richly ornamented with terracotta carvings. The roof has the classic chala style of Bengal architecture.
- Gopinath Jor-Bangla is located 1 kilometre (0.62 mi) south of Pabna town in Bangladesh. There is no reliable information about the date when it was built, possibly in the 19th century. It is one of the major archaeological attractions of the Pabna District.
- Char-chala style has a roof with four curved, triangular pieces that meet at a point.
