Photograph of a tank at Lonar in Maharashtra, taken by Robert Gill in 1868-69. The temple is described by Henry Cousens in the Central Provinces list (1897), "To the east of the large temple is a fine Hemadpanti tank. It is enclosed by a stone wall eleven feet high, on three sides of which are passages of nine steps leading down to the first terrace, which is 85 feet square. The walls, both of the enclosure and at the sides of the steps, are ornamented with pretty pilasters and niches, whilst on the fourth side is a charming balcony projecting over the first and second terraces."
