This photograph of the temple at Banda, Manbhum district was taken by Joseph David Beglar c. 1872-73 and forms part of the Archaeological Survey of India Collections (Indian Museum Series). The accompanying text explains, "...Here is a stone temple in the middle of some low jangal; in plan, it resembles the temples of Barakar, and, like them, it consists of a single cell; like them, too, it once had a mandapa, in front of which the fragments, misarranged into a long pillared hall, still exist..." This view was taken from the remnants of the pillared hall and faces towards the doorway and window apertures of the shrine. Bengal list pp. 556-557; J.D. Beglar, Report of a tour through the Bengal Provinces...in 1872-73 (A.S.I. vol. VIII, Calcutta, 1878), pp. 168-169
