Photograph of southern portion of the double storeyed cave temple at Karusa, taken by D.H. Sykes in 1875. In his report of the operations in Western India in 1875-76 James Burgess wrote, 'A double cave of two stories, very irregular in plan...the floor of the south half of this cave is about 6 feet 5 inches below that of the other hall. In front it has a screen with two pillars supporting a massive lintel; but inside this, what may be termed the verandah is open above, and has roughly fashioned dwarapala or doorkeeper on the south end and an unfinished one on the other.'
