Photograph of the front corridor of the old math or monastery at Lonar near Buldana District in Berar, taken by Robert Gill in 1868-69. In the Central Provinces List of 1897 Henry Cousens wrote that at Lonar there are, "The next Hemadpanti temple is to the north of the village, and midway between it and the temple and tank; it consists of a portico with small wings at each end open in front, but enclosed on the other side and supported by three lines of columns and pilasters opposite each column in the third rank. It measures 102 feet by 20 feet, and there has been an enclosed building in a line with one of the wings. It is supposed to have been a place of almsgiving; the recipient occupy the portico while the victuals were cooked in the enclosure."
