Photograph of a ruined temple at Nohta in the Damoh district taken by Henry Cousens between 1892 and 1894. Nohta is situated in the modern state of Madhya Pradesh. Concerning this temple, Cousens reported that: "13 miles south-east of Damoh. Judging from the number of sites of old temples, which are scattered in and around the village, Nohta must have been at one time a place of note. The only temple now standing is near the road, about half a mile to the south of the village. It is in a very ruinous condition, the outer shell of the walls of the shrine having for the most part fallen together with the sikhara and roof of the sabha mandapa. The temple consists of a shrine, hall, and porch, which have all been fully decorated." This is a view looking towards the elaborately sculptured entrance to the shrine, with the linga visible inside.
