Photograph of the temple of Naganatha at Khatav, Satara District of Maharashtra, taken by Henry Cousens in 1897-98. In the Progress report for the Archaeological Survey of Western India for the year ending 30th June 1898, Henry Cousens wrote, "...At Khatav we did find some remains that interested us, - several old temples of the Hemadpanti class. Among these, that of Naganatha, across the stream bed upon the north-west of the town, was the most complete and deserving of notice. It occupies a conspicuous position upon high ground, and has an open front with a neatly ornamented fa├žade. Ganapati presides over the shrine door while the linga is established within. The shikara or spire has gone...". This temple has a sculpture of Nandi in front of the entrance.
