Ink wash drawing by an anonymous artist working in the Calcutta style, c. 1780-1785. Inscribed in Persian: (above the cupola) 'andarun-i sabha mandap'; (below the right doorway) 'in darvaza-i huzad'; (below the central doorway) 'bar rah-i darvaza-i annapurna birun' (Inside the assembly hall; this is the door at the side(?); the way to the door of Annapurna from outside.).

This drawing is actually of two different parts of Hindu temples. The first section shows the interior of a dome raised on four columns with a chain and bell hanging from its crown. The second section is of a long exterior wall, into which three doors give access, two of them revealing rows of columns.
