Photograph of the Narmada River at Mandhata, taken by Deen Dayal in the 1880s, from the Curzon Collection: 'Views of places proposed to be visited by Their Excellencies Lord & Lady Curzon during Autumn Tour 1902'. Mandhata is a Hindu place of pilgrimage due to the presence of one of the twelve celebrated lingas of Shiva contained in the Onkar Temple. The town is built partly on the south bank of the Narmada and partly on an island in the river. This is a panoramic view composed of two joined prints (right-hand side somewhat faded) showing the ghats and the Onkar Temple on the left.
