Photograph at the ruined Kali Mandir at Chintarian, Devikot, now in Bangladesh, taken by John Henry Ravenshaw in c.1871. Ravenshaw took views of ruined sites in the jungle at Devikot, the ancient city of Bannagar, and wrote a 'Descriptive note of the photographs of ancient architectural remains in Kantonugger and Bannugger' which was published in the Bengal public proceedings no. 26 of October 1871 although this view is not described there. These small hut temples have the curved cornice often seen in monuments of the area, a feature which is thought to have originally derived from the curved bamboo roofs of local village huts.
