Remains of an ancient temple at Barolli [Badoli], near the Chambul
Engraver: Finden, Edward Francis (1791-1857)
Engraving of the remains of a temple at Badoli by Edward Francis Finden (1791-1857) after Patrick Young Waugh (1788-1829). Plate 8 of James Tod's 'Annals and antiquities of Rajast'han or the Central and Western Rajpoot States of India' published in London in 1832. Badoli, situated south west of Kota in Rajasthan, is the site of three fine examples of 10th century Hindu temple architecture. This view shows two ruined columns decorated with female figures. Tod hypothesised that they were 'intended to form a torun, having a simple architrave laid across them, which served as a swing for the recreation of the god'.
