Photograph from the Curzon Collection: 'Presented with feelings of friendship and sincere admiration to Lord Curzon of Kedleston, Viceroy and Governor-General of India, by H.H. Rasulkhanji, Navab Junagadha. 1900', of the Mallinatha Temple at Girnar, Junagadh, taken by the Solankee Studio around 1900. The Mallinatha Temple was built in 1231 by Vastupala and Tejapala, the same patrons of one of the temples of Mount Abu. It has an unusual layout as it consists of three sanctuaries that open off a single columned mandapa. The basement mouldings, the wall niches and the overhanging eaves are some of the original features. The corbelled domes of the mandapa are typical of the Solanki style. At the corners there are subsidiary clustered towers.
