Photograph from an album of 41 albumen prints by Edmund David Lyon. Lyon's 'Notes to Accompany a Series of Photographs Prepared to Illustrate the Ancient Architecture of Southern India', edited by James Fergusson, gives the following description of this view of the hall (Pudhu Mandapam built by Tirumala Nayaka, reigned 1623-59) at the Minakshi Sundareshvara temple in Madurai, '[this photograph] shows the Side Aisle. The Pillars are not nearly so elaborately ornamented as those in the nave, but they are of elegant proportions. The beauty of them is much spoilt by the lower part being whitewashed.'
