Photograph of a statue of a female deity, with an inscription on the pedestal at Hasanpur, Monghyr (Munger) District, taken by Joseph David Beglar around 1871-72. Hasanpur is also referred to as Jaynagar in the archaeological survey gazeteers. In his report of his photographic tour of 1872-73 Beglar wrote, "Outside the dargah, and to its east on a mound under a bat tree, is a large collection of statues in various stages of mutilation; they are mostly of no very ancient date, to judge from the execution. Among the fragments are those of Ganesa, Lakshmi, several lingams, a badly executed slab representing the Nava-graha, Hara Gauri, &c. The village of Hasanpur Kako is situated on a high mound." A copy of the inscription shown in this photograph can be seen in the Archaeological Survey Reports volume III Pl.XLV.
