Aquatint by Henry Creighton and Thomas Metland dated to 1817. It shows stone slabs taken from the Chota Sona or Small Golden Mosque. Most of the monuments in Gaur are bereft of epigraphs, some of which were removed for safekeeping while others were lost to time. The complex past of Gaur is reflected in the fact that much of the building material is the recycled remains of the sacred places of other faiths. However, where an image was to be totally enfolded into a different structure, it was left intact.
