Photograph of the Temple of Katesvara at Katar Khatav in the Satara District of Maharashtra, taken by Henry Cousens in 1897-98. This is a back view of "The old temple of Kataresvara, of similar construction to that of Naganatha at Khatav. The pillars are better finished. Along the face of the fa├žade wall are several indecent figures in panels. This building, however, has portions of its original old brick tower remaining shewing that it rose after the Chalukyan style with cusped arches as at Kasivisvesvara at Lakkundi. The brick-work has had a thin layer of plaster over it..." ('Progress Report of the Archaeological Survey of Western India, for the year ending 30th June 1898', p. 2).
