One would be familiar with my fascination with doors an doorways. So I couldn’t pass this opportunity. The door stood out with very bright colours in contrast to the whitewashed walls. I could have framed just the door, but leaving the gopuram in the frame would tell it was a temple door and those in the know that it was indeed the Sitaram Bagh Temple.

Located near Mangalhat, Sitaram Bagh is a vast complex of temples, samadhis, residential quarters and open areas. The main temple complex consists of a series of quadrangles. Each time one enters a courtyard there is a sense of being overwhelmed by the style, scale and grace of the various structures and architectural elements. Every new courtyard is sure to present a new facet, and thus the complex provides endless surprises.
The main temple has not been interfered with, and retains its original settings and grandeur. The most notable aspect of the Sitaram Bagh temple complex provides endless surprises. Sitaram Bagh temple complex is a rare blending of the Moghul-Rajput styles with Qutub Shahi architecture. Some of the structures in the complex are said to be about 200 years old.
