Photograph of the Jagdish Temple from the 'Reading Collection: Views of Udaipur taken by an unknown photographer c.1910. The photograph is part of an album containing architectural and topographical views of sites in Rajasthan, mainly of Udaipur, originally in thecollection of Rufus Daniel Isaacs, Lord Reading, who served as Viceroy of India (1921-1926).
View of city of Udaipur and Jagdish Temple on the right (c.1651) "was built in the traditional style, but the figural sculpture on the walls shows a radical departure from the past. Instead of the thousand-year-old diaphanous dhoti clasped at the waist with a jewelled girdle, with loops and streamers hanging down upon the thighs, women wear the long, opaque skirt."
