Genre: Photograph

Photograph of the south east of the Jageshvara temple, Devalana, taken by Henry Cousens in the 1880s or 1890s. The town of Devalana is located in northern Maharashtra and is home to a number of modern shrines. There is also one older structure, the Jageshvara Temple which consists of three shrines. The foundations of all three shrines are ancient, however they have all been heavily rebuilt in a very plain manner. This can be seen in this photograph, in the architectural style of the sections of temple to the left and right of the entrance. Yet the older basement courses that remain indicate how ornate the entire temple must have been when first constructed. The front of the hall is open and the eaves and corners are supported upon dwarf pillars which stand on the low parapet wall. The porch and roof of the temple are heavily damaged.
