Photographer: Beglar, Joseph David
Medium: Photographic print
This photograph of some statues in the court of the temple at Damdama, Hazaribagh District was taken by Joseph David Beglar in the 1870s and forms part of the Archaeological Survey of India Collections (Indian Museum Series). Damdama is located in the modern state of Jharkand. The site is made up of a number of mounds in which were found large eighteen inch bricks, indicating antiquity, and a number of temples. A note accompanying the print describes the group of sculptured slabs at the site, identified in Bloch's list as, "Surya seated on lotus throne, and some ornamental pieces."
