Photograph of the main façade of the Nandishvara Dvipa temple in the Tuk of Sheth Hemabhai Vakatachand, Satrunjaya. This photograph shows the head-on view of the main façade. Lyon wrote: "The numberless small temples grouped together in and about the Adinath Square and Vimalvasi enclosure are all too much alike to need further notice. Returning then at once to the principal street...and following it till the wall of the Motishah enclosure is passed, the long flight of steps leading up the Southern face of the Northern summit will at once be seen to the right; ascending these to within a few steps of the summit, a small door is seen in the wall to the right, inside of which is the temple of Nandishwar Dhip represented in this photograph. It was built by Himabhoy Wakhalchand in 1840 and is quite ''sui generis'' here, resembling much more one of the tombs at Ahmedabad with its perforated windows, than a Jain temple. The interior is literally crammed with images, there being it is said no less than 121 crowded into this small space."
