Illustration of a portion of a ceiling from one of the small shrines of the Rudra Mala [Mahalaya] at Sidhpur from James Burgess' 'Original Drawings [of] Architecture of Northern Gujarat.' The Rudra Mahalaya Temple at Sidhpur dates from the 12th century and was constructed by the Solanki ruler Jayasimha (r.1094-1143). The Rudra Mahalaya temple's multi-storied temple is devoted to the Shiva, a principle Hindu deity and once consisted of eleven shrines and three gateways. As the Rudra Mahalaya complex was ruined in the 13th century, from the principle temple only two porches and four pillars remain. Inscribed: Govt. Archaeol. Survey of Western India. No. 718
