Photograph of the shrine known as the 'Goddess's Bedchamber' in the Venkataramana Temple at Tadpatri in Andhra Pradesh. This view was taken by Madras School of Industrial Arts in c.1868 and is from the Archaeological Survey of India Collections. This temple complex was built during the Vijayanagara period in the mid-16th century. It is entered through a tall gopura in the middle of the east side of a rectangular colonnade. The main shrine, dedicated to Vishnu, is preceded by a closed mandapa with two porches. The outer walls are decorated with sculptures representing Krishna and other divinities from the Ramayana legends. The circular shrine and the goddess temple seen in this view are situated to the north-west of the main temple.
