Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/Y3022A/21

Scope and Contents

250 x 199 mm. View looking across rocky ground (the seashore?) towards the Mahalakshmi Temple at Breach Candy on the West of the island, north of Malabar Hill. Dedicated to the Goddess of Wealth and built in the 1830s, the temple is an amalgam of Indian and western styles, bearing a strong resemblance in general structure to St Martin in the Fields, the prototype for so many British churches in India. For a more detailed note on the temple, see Edwardes, vol 3 p 356 – 357.
