Old photos of Mahapalipuram - 1860s
  • Hi

    Photos from 1860s (supposedly) from Madras College of Arts and Crafts housed at University of Chicago Digital Library. This may be of interest to the curious, as there are stand-alone-statues that I have not seen during my vists. Also there is a beautiful Somaskanda panel which is labeled as Buddha, his wife and child. There is a tall mandapam that I dont recall seeing. Look forward to hearing your comments and thoughts.

    I wonder if Madras College of Arts and Crafts (have not heard about it), presumably in Chennai, might house some old photos and records that may be of historical value?

Howdy, Stranger!
