Oriental Scenery/Part 2/Plate 16

No. XVI.


Madura is a place of great antiquity, justly celebrated for its Hindoo temples and choultries. The lofty part of this building is a gate that leads to the principal temple, dedicated to the idol Chokee Lingham. The style of architecture is perfectly Hindoo, but of what period no exact account could be obtained; the publisher of these views, indeed, regrets very much his inability on many occasions to give the dates of buildings apparently ancient, and hopes that his silence will be accepted in preference to conjectures unsupported by facts.
