Photograph of the Manimaheshvara Temple at Brahmaur in the Chamba Valley in Himachal Pradesh, taken by an unknown photographer in the 1870s. The Manimaheshvara Temple, built in the tenth century, stands within a temple complex which also contains shrines to Ganesha and Rama. This is a general view of the stone temple's high sanctuary tower, which stands on a stone platform and is topped by an overhanging wooden roof. Opposite the temple is an open pavilion containing an almost life-size sculpture of the sacred bull Nandi, the vehicle of Shiva, which dates from the eighth century.
