Sant'Angelo in Formis, given to Montecassino in 1072, was rebuilt and painted in 1080s under Abbot Desiderius of Montecassino. In the apse, he holds model of church with distinctive porch façade that appears locally, as at Sessa Aurunca Cathedral. #ChurchesInChurches #MedievalArt
Built on site of Roman temple to Diana and a Lombard church dedicated to Archangel Michael, the angel's shrine is full of #AugustAngels. The three archangels, Gabriel, Michael, and Raphael, ring the apse. #Romanesque #MedievalArt
Archangel Michael presides over the portal with its #inscription naming Desiderius of Montecassino. Unusually, a second lunette (somewhat restored) is painted above with Mary crowned and carried aloft by angels. #AugustAngels

#Beluru #Channakeshava temple, from Epigraphia Carnatica, Vol 5. Notice the gopura which is not there anymore.
There was a gopura before 1397 CE, which was destroyed by an attack - and a new gopura built during Harihara II of Vijayanagara.

Only this one did not survive too to the present day. :(
How I wish this was true today! @nirbhaavuka
