Genre: Photograph

Photograph of a close view of entrance to the ruined temple at Kharod in Bilaspur District. The entrance is flanked by two female sculptures and a band of sculpture along the lintel. Bloch's list seems to assume that this is the temple described on pp. 201-202, the Lakhneswar Temple. However, it appears more probably to be one of the smaller temples described on p. 203, 'adorned with sculpture collected from all sides; in this temple are numerous pillars and pilasters with sculptured females similar to the sculptures at Sirpur...' The site is described in J.D. Beglar, Report of a tour in Bundelkhand and Malwa, 1871-72; and in the Central Provinces, 1873-74 (A.S.I. vol. VII, Calcutta, 1878), pp. 201-203.
