This photograph of a temple doorway was taken by Joseph David Beglar c.1874-76 as part of the Archaeological Survey of India. The temple is located in Kichang in the Singbhum district, in the modern state of Jharkhand. "Half a mile to the east by a little south of the village is a stone temple, not quite prostrate; it is small, single-celled, and in the Barakar style; it has a sculptured door frame for the sanctum: the temple is Saivic." J.D. Beglar, Report of tours in the South-Eastern provinces in 1874-75 and 1875-76 (A.S.I. vol. XIII, Calcutta, 1882), p. 75. On either side of the doorway stand sculpted guardian figures.
