Maharaja Man Singh of Jodhpur Visits the Mahamandir
(image added 2007)
Maharaja Man Singh folds his hands in devoted prayer to a surprisingly lifelike statue of the Hindu saint Jalandhar Nath, which rests on a thronelike pedestal. The maharaja stands at the heart of the Mahamandir (Great Temple) which he had built not long before this painting was made. The temple is surrounded by an arcade that separates the sacred spaces within from the worldly spaces outside. Smaller buildings and numerous courtiers fill the grounds, while the vibrant floral border locates the temple in a gardenlike suburb outside the city of Jodhpur.
