Photograph of the unfinished gopura of the Ramalingeshvara Temple at Tadpatri, Anantapur District, from the Archaeological Survey of India Collection: Madras, 1896-98. This complex was built during the Vijayanagara period at the beginning of the 16th century. It is entered through large unfinished gopuras and consists of two temples situated in a courtyard. The gopuras are very elaborately carved in the Vijayanagara style. The carvings include friezes of jewels, scrollwork, miniature animals, figures of divinities, donors, maidens, guardians, multi-lobed arches and pilasters with pot bases.
