Photograph of the image of the Parshvanatha Seshphani at Junagadh, taken by a photographer of the Solankee Studio around 1900, part of the Curzon Collection: 'Presented with feelings of friendship and sincere admiration to Lord Curzon of Kedleston, Viceroy and Governor-General of India, by H.H. Rasulkhanji, Navab Junagadha. 1900'. In the 'Report on the Antiquities of Kathiawad and Kachh of 1874-75', Burgess wrote, "...proceding to the north we enter the enclosure of the temple of Parswanatha, rebuilt, it is said, by Singharama Soni in the latter part of the sixteenth century, and repaired by Premabhai Hemabhai about 1843. It contains a white marble figure of Parswanatha bearing the date 1803 A.D. with the polycephalous cobra over him, whence it is styled Seshphani. This temple is peculiar in having a sort of gallery; faces east whilst the others mostly face the west."
