The first image shows the Lakshminarayana Temple at Lakkundi in Karnataka from the publication 'Architecture in Dharwar and Mysore' by William Henry Pigou. The monuments at Lakkundi are both Hindu and Jaina. The Lakshminarayana Temple, dedicated to Vishnu, is built in a different style compared to all other temples there and has similarities with Hoysala temples. The temple was probably built between AD 1150 and 1250. A print of this image is in the collection of the British Library.
