Photograph of the Narasimha Temple at Brahmaur in the Chamba Valley in Himachal Pradesh, taken by an unknown photographer in the 1870s. The Narasimha Temple built in the tenth century, stands within a temple complex which also contains shrines to Ganesha and Rama. The stone temple has a high sanctuary tower which is topped by an overhanging wooden roof. At the other end of the complex opposite the Manimaheshvara 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.
