Photograph of the north porch of the Rudra Mahalaya Temple at Sidhpur, from the east, taken by Henry Cousens in the 1880s, from the Archaeological Survey of India Collections. The Rudra Mahalaya Temple at Sidhpur in Gujarat dates from the 12th century and was constructed by the Solanki ruler Jayasimha (r.1094-1143). The multi-storeyed sanctuary is devoted to the Shiva, a principle Hindu deity, and once consisted of eleven shrines and three gateways. Only two porches and four pillars remain from the principle temple.
