Photograph of temple No. 7, Telkupi taken by Joseph David Beglar in 1872-1873. "...a small temple, single cell, faces north; over the entrance Gane├ža; the object of worship inside is a two-armed statue, holding a lotus in each hand, being the usual form of statues of Aditya, or the sun: he has a high head-dress, bound by a fillet, flying horizontally outwards at the sides; four sub-ordinate figures on each side, and two flying figures at the two upper corners, complete the sculpture. The temple, in material and execution, resembles No. 1", J.D. Beglar, Report of a tour through the Bengal Provinces...in 1872-73 (A.S.I. vol. VIII, Calcutta, 1878), p172.
