Fun Fact

Bourne, a banker who was also a passionate amateur photographer in England, became a professional photographer when he arrived in India in 1863.

Description

The Buniyar Temple in Navashera is an exceptionally well-preserved example of Kashmiri architecture, durable because it is made of granite rather than the more common limestone. It is believed to date back to the 8th century. For another view taken on the same day by the same artist, search for 1994.186 and glimpse the temple’s roof over the wall surrounding the area.
