Photograph of the Motisah Tuk from the north-west in Satrunjaya. Lyon wrote that this view gives '...an excellent idea of the manner in which the temples have been massed together on the summits of the hill, the fore ground...being occupied by the great Motishah enclosure. This square was built by a Bombay merchant and his relatives in 1835, the valley having been partially filled up and levelled to provide the site; there are said to be 3,600 images contained in its temples.'
