Photograph of the front of the Temple of Ramalinga at Gursala, Satara District of Maharashtra, taken by Henry Cousens in 1897-98. In the Progress report for the Archaeological Survey of Western India for the year ending 30th June 1898, Henry Cousens wrote, "The temple of Ramalinga, outside the village, is a neat little combination of kunda or tank and shrine, the latter standing upon the west margin of the tank and forming part of the one general design...The tank is square with flights of steps leading down to the water's edge from an inside platform which runs around some distance below ground level, a stair leading down to it from the eastern side opposite the shrine".
