This print of temples at Wai was taken by an unknown photographer in the 1860s. Situated in the Satara district of the Bombay area, on the banks of the Kistna River, Wai is a place of Hindu pilgrimage with a large Brahmin or priestly caste population. There are several temples here and seven bathing ghats. The monuments include a Ganesha idol known as Dholya Ganapati, carved from a single stone by Sardar Raste in 1762.
