Photograph of the tank and temples at Raipur taken by Joseph David Beglar in 1873-74. Raipur is situated in the modern state of Madhya pradesh. A note with the prints reads, "About half-way between Rayapura and Drug [west of Raipur] are a few temples on the banks of a tank by the roadside; these temples are modern, not dating beyond the Mahratta period" Presumably they are the group of temples referred to in J.D. Beglar, Report of a tour...in the Central Provinces, 1873-74 (A.S.I. vol. VII, Calcutta, 1878), p. 168.
