This photograph of the exterior wall and entrance gopuram of the Sri Ranagnathaswami Temple in Srirangapatnam, taken in the 1890s by an unknown photographer, is from the Curzon Collection's 'Souvenir of Mysore Album'. Notes accompanying the album explain, "The temple of Sri Ranganathaswami is the principal Hindu building in the fort. It is related that in the earliest ages, Gautamarishi worshipped here. In A.D. 894, one Tirumalaiya appears to have founded the temple; and in 1454, Timmana, a Hebbar, enlarged it with materials taken from 101 Jain temples."
