Photograph of the Kamalanarayana Temple at Degaon, Belgaum District, taken by Henry Cousens in the 1880s. Degaon is situated in the district of Belgaum, modern day Karnataka. This Chalukya temple is dated around 1175 from an inscription. It is built on an unusual plan as it has three shrines and the principal one is located inside a long hall which has an open verandah with a sloping roof resting on ten pillars. The back of the temple shows the two shrines wide apart. The walls are decorated with projecting pillars and horizontal bands of mouldings. The shrines are not roofed by superstructures.
