The picture depicts a temple in the village of Mitaoli, Morena district, Madhya Pradesh, central India. According to some historians, the design of the Indian Parliament is based on this structure.
This tower was once part of a cantonment church at Karnal, Haryana, north India. Frequent outbreak of disease led to the army shifting base elsewhere and they dismantled the church, brick by brick, leaving the tower in place. Not far from the tower is a graveyard which includes the grave of Gen Anson, who died here in 1857, while on the march to Delhi to quell the Mutiny.
