Genre: Photograph

Photograph of the great Chaumukh and other temples in the Khartaravasi Tuk in Satrunjaya. Lyon wrote: "Returning to the Himabhoy Wakhatchand enclosure the visitor should follow its Northern wall and will see almost immediately a small door giving admittance to the court called Khartavasi. It is situated on and occupies the whole of the NW summit of the Hill and in it will be found the great Chaumukh temple. The only place from which the whole of this magnificent building can be seen is from the top of the wall which surrounds the enclosure and it is from this spot the photograph is taken; still there are so many other buildings which obstruct the view that the picture does not certainly do justice to the grandeur of the large temple.''
