General view of a temple at Garkhed 10032123
Photographer: Cousens, Henry
Medium: Photographic print
Photograph of the temple at Garkhed taken by Henry Cousens in the 1880s or 1890s. Garkhed is located in the northern part of the modern state of Maharashtra. As Cousens states, shortly after this photograph was taken, the principal remains of interest "there are the ruins of what was once a very fine temple of the best style of work. Portions only of the plinth and walls of the back of the shrine now remain, showing the mouldings of the basement, and portions of the richly carved wall above it. For the rest, the addition of mud walls has preserved the place as the habitation of the god now worshipped." A later, square tower has been built on top of the original base of the shrine.
