Photograph of the Jarah ki Math Temple near Barwa Sagar, taken by an unknown photographer c.1890s. The temple contains an image of Shiva and Parvati and an inscribed image of Durga. A report written at the time this photograph was taken states that, "...A little less than three miles to the west of Barua Sagar, near the village of Phatera, is a temple-tower of the ninth century, built on the summit of a dih...constructed of solid blocks of sandstone, richly carved with figures from the Hindu pantheon, which have been much defaced by the Musalmans. Externally it measures about 22 feet by nine feet, but originally it extended at least another nine feet in an eastward direction. It is built in the form of a shikara, the outline of which is simple. A great proportion of the east fa├žade is covered with ''horse-shoe'' diaper work, and profusely ornamented with figure carving of a high class nature."
