Photograph of the Temple of Amritesvara at Singnapur, Satara District of Maharashtra, taken by Henry Cousens in 1897-98. This view shows the temple shikara, from the hillside. "The lower temple of Amritesvara, which is said to have been in existence before the big one [the Sambhu Mahadeva], is of much the same style of work. It is in a very shattered condition and is dangerously unsafe for use, but people use it nevertheless, and stand about unconcernedly under tons of cracked masses of stone whose temporary props look as if they might collapse at any moment" ('Progress Report of the Archaeological Survey of Western India, for the year ending 30th June 1898', pp. 3-4).
