Photograph of the remains of the supply sluice of the old tank at Dhenuj, Gujarat, taken by Henry Cousens in the 1880s. In the 'Archaeological Survey of Western India, vol. IX', Burgess and Cousens wrote, "Dhinoj or Dhenuj ... is a village of considerable size, and around it are remains of buildings, tanks, and step-wells of former times. Among these is the old temple of Vyaghresvari - ..." This view shows the remains of three massive stone pipes which fed water into the tank which has long since disappeared.
