Photograph of a statue in the courtyard of the Yameshvara Temple from the Archaeological Survey of India Collections, taken by William Henry Cornish in 1892. The Yameshvara Temple was built in the late 13th Century and consists of a sanctuary and a mandapa richly carved. Inside the courtyard in which the temple stands there are remains of other temple towers that date back to the 7th Century. This is a close view of sculpture slab, measuring about 5 inches in height according to the measuring pole placed beside it. The sculpture represents Kala, the god of Death, one of the names of Shiva.
