Photograph of the Harihareshvara Temple at Pimpalgaon, taken by Henry Cousens in the1880s-90s. Pimpalgaon is located in the Jalgaon district of the modern state of Maharashtra. Cousens described this temple in the 'List of Antiquarian Remains in the Bombay Presidency' shortly after this photograph was taken ''At the village of Pimpalgaon is the temple of Hari-Haresvara standing in the junction of the Bavula and Dabba streams, about a mile south of the village. It faces the west. Though originally an old temple it has been almost entirely rebuilt with brick, rubble, and plaster masonry, and is now of no account architecturally." In this photograph the difference between the rebuilt sections and the older parts can clearly be seen; the tower appears to be much older than the wall to its right.
