Genre: Photograph

Photograph of the sculpture on the fa├žade of one of the temples near the Adeshwar Bhagarai Temple in the Vimalavasi Tuk, Satrunjaya. Lyon wrote that this '...is a view of a portion of the carving on one of the old temples in the square of Adinath or Adeshwar. It stands to the left of the great temple and is especially interesting for the purpose of comparison with the details of carving to be found elsewhere, and though we miss here the wondrous beauty of Hallabeed and other Southern temples, still the execution of the figures is bold and quite equal to any to be found in any other part of Northern India.'
