The latter feature indicates that this reconstruction happened during the
Muhammadan occupation. , The adjoining building, used as the shrine proper, must have been
a monument of the short period during which Sansar Chand held the Kangra Fort. The clumsy
shape of the spire bears ample evidence of its late date.It is a curious example of the
capricious action of the earthquake, that this building was destroyed, whereas the
adjoining mandapa did not show any sign of injury.
To the south of the Ambika temple there are
two small Jain shrines, facing west. One of them contains merely a pedestal, which must
have belonged to a Tirthankar image. In the other is placed a seated statue of Adinatha
with a partly obliterated inscription dated, according to Cunningham, in Samvat 1523 (A.D.
1466) in the reign of Sansar Chand I.
In the city of Kangra the only place of any
antiquity is the small temple ofIndreshvara. It is ascribed to Raja Indrachandra the first
member of whose name, according to a common practice, is coupled with that of the
deity-Isvara, i.e. Siva to whom the shrine is dedicated. If Cunningham was right in
identifying this Indrachandra with the Indu-Chandra of Jalandhara mentioned in the
Rajatarangini (VII, 150) as a contemporary of Anantadeva, of Kashmir (A.D. 1028-63), it
would follow that the Indresvara temple dates from the Ilth century.
