Medium: Photographic print
Photograph of three Shiva temples in Dubrajpur, West Bengal from the Archaeological Survey of India Collections: India Office Series, taken by an unknown photographer in the 1870s. The central shrine is single storied, sits on a raised platform and has but one entrance. The temple is classified as a trayodassha-ratna (thirteen-pinnacled) shrine and is typical of the Dubrajpur type. It is decorated with sculptures of foliate designs and carved figures of Krishna are found on the panels, playing the flute while surrounded by adoring gopis (young cattle-tending maidens).
