Photograph group of carved images and other pieces near the Parsvanatha Temple, Gersappa taken by Henry Cousens in the 1880s or 1890s. Gersappa is located in the modern state of Karnataka. The town was abandoned and covered in dense undergrowth when this photograph was taken. In 1926 Henry Cousens reported that at Gersappa, "the remains now consist of several ruined temples ... In the south-east corner of Parsvanatha's temple is a little ruined cell containing, in and round it, a curious collection of jetiga stones, a little brass horse and horseman, a linga, stones bearing rudely-carved human figures and inscription stones."
