Photograph of an unidentified temple, Nagda taken by O.S. Baudesson in 1882. Nagda is situated near Udaipur in Rajasthan. The site is famous for the two, Hindu, Sasbahu temples which were built in the late 10th Century. They are dedicated to Vishnu and are raised on a high terrace facing a tank. They were built next to the Bagela lake and situated close by are a number of Jain sanctuaries. Built in the 15th century many of these are now submerged in the lake. This photograph shows an unidentified temple at Nagda consisting of a sanctuary covered by a clustered curvilinear tower and an open pillared porch, both built on a stepped plan. The outer walls are plain except for a sculptural niche on the principal projection.
