Photograph of an unidentified mandapa, probably at Kanchipuram in Tamil Nadu, taken by Henry Dixon in 1868, from the Archaeological Survey of India Collections. The holy Hindu town of Kanchipuram was the Pallava capital in the 7th and 8th centuries and continued to be an important centre under the Chola, Vijayanagara and Nayaka periods. This view shows a ruined pillared hall with carved columns and arched niches on the roof, which could be one of the many temples in the town.
