Flat-Roofed Hindu Temple near the Awasghar Temple, Midnapore, Bengal - 1869

The view shows the fa├žade of a small temple, with a flat roof and parapet and with a central, triple-arched entrance. The arches are decorated with lobed ornament around their frame, with decorative motifs at their apexes, and an inscription on the wall to the right hand side of the entrance. A single figure is seated on the plinth that projects from beneath the front of the building.
