The Gavi Gangadhareshvara Temple, Bangalore - 1804

Plate nineteen in 'Picturesque Scenery in the Kingdom of Mysore' by James Hunter. This aquatint is based on a picture by Hunter, and contrary to its assigned title -'A Moorish Mosque At Bangalore', represents a Hindu temple.

The GANGADHARESHVARA TEMPLE at Bangalore was also the subject of an aquatint by Thomas and William Daniell in the fifth voume of their Oriental Scenery series.

BURKHA (SUPER SHORT STORY) In khoobsurat chehron ke peeche ki kahani, kaun bayaan kar sakta hai... Kaun jaane is burkhe ne khoobsurati chupaaye hai... ya kisi ghao ko chupa rakha hai.

some 'Moorish Mosque', dumb artist! I was fascinated to visit there in '09. This drawing doesn't make it very clear that there's a cave.
