Photograph of the carvings on the Jagdish temple at Udaipur in Rajasthan, taken by Deen Dayal in the 1880s, from the Curzon Collection: 'Views of places proposed to be visited by Their Excellencies Lord & Lady Curzon during Autumn Tour 1902'.

The outer walls are elaborately carved; the basement has multi-faceted mouldings including friezes of elephants. Two tiers of sculptures representing the various divinities are set in the wall recesses.
