Photograph of the Srirunganatha Swami Temple in Seringapatam, Karnataka, from the Archaeological Survey of India Collections: India Office Series, taken by Henry Dixon in the 1860s. Seringapatam, a small town near Mysore, is an island fortress surrounded by the Kaveri River that was ruled by a succession of courts, the most prominent of which was Haidar Ali (r. 1761-1782) and his son Tipu Sultan (r. 1782-1799). This temple predates those rulers as the majority of it was built at the end of 9th century. This photograph is a general view of the gopura of the Temple.
