Photograph of a temple to the south-east of the principal group, Balod, Raipur District taken by Joseph David Beglar in 1873 or 1874. Balod is situated in the modern state of Madhya Pradesh. The town is home to a number of temples and a ruined fort. Most of the temples stand at the eastern end of the village. In Beglar's 'Report on a tour of the Central Provinces 1873-1874' he refers to the temple: "A single temple and remains of another stand about five hundred feet to the south-east of the group, near a tola of the village Balod; the one in the best state of preservation is covered with plaster, and is not undeserving of notice from its beauty though it is small." From the angle of this photograph the structure is largely obscured by trees.
