Photograph of sculptural details on the wall of the Jalakanteshvara Temple at Vellore in Tamil Nadu, taken by an unknown photographer in c.1870, from the Archaeological Survey of India Collections. The Jalankanteshvara Temple is built in the Vijayanagara style and dates from the 16th century. The complex is enclosed by high walls and is entered on the south through a tall gopura, or gateway, which consists of six diminishing storeys. The first two storeys are decorated with mouldings and carvings. This view shows a portion of the fa├žade near the side entrance of the temple, with a row of decorative pilasters surmounted by representations of various temple buildings.
