Rasulkhanji, Navab Junagadha. 1900', of the Damodar Kund bridge and Damodarji’s Temple at Junagadh, Gujarat, taken in c.1900 by an unknown photographer, possibly the Solankee Studio, Rajkot. The bridge spans the river Sonarekha which has its source at the foot of Mount Girnar, an important centre of pilgrimage since the 3rd century BC. The mountain is particularly sacred to the Jains but also to Muslims and Hindus and it is the site of a number of temples. An ascetic meditates in the Damodar Kund or pool in the foreground and the shikara or spire of the Damodarji Temple rises from the hillside at left.
