Photograph of Trineta Temple remains in Than(?), Gujarat, taken by Henry Cousens in the 1880s, Archaeological Survey of India Collections. Trineta is located six miles north of Than. The Mahadeva temple stands in a walled compound and is richly carved inside and outside. It probably belongs to the 11th-12th centuries. However, this is probably an incorrect identification. Cousens' negative number, listed by Bloch as 1220, seems to be rather 922a; a possible alternative identification for this print is Vadnagar.
