Medium: Photographic print
Photograph of Jain temple at Pathari taken by Henry Cousens c.1892-94 and described in his 'Report of a tour in Bundelkhand and Malwa, 1871-72; and in the Central Provinces, 1873-74' : "To the north-west of the great Gadarmal temple, and not far from the foot of the hill, is a large group of ruins, consisting of Jain temples in all stages of decay; the original design of the great group appears to have been a number of cells round an open court-yard; the monotony of lines of cells being agreeably relieved by larger temples at the important points, as the centres and corners; on one side, the two tower roofs rise up close to each other, and, I believe, mark the sites of the principal shrines; the present entrance is through a narrow gap in the walls; all the cells are flat-roofed; those on the side where the double tower rises are two-storeyed, and it is possible the others, or some of the others, may have also been two-storeyed; the cells are, some of them, full to choking of uninteresting naked Jain statues of all sizes..."
