Mahal in ruins...

I saw this dilapidated mahal on the highway at Abdullahpuram near Vellore. Must be built by one of the Nawabs of Arcot (may be Abdullah Khan as the name of the area suggests). Looks like insensitive widening of the highway must have damaged most of the structure. It serves as a cow shed now. The facade has some impressive workmanship.
If you have any info on this ruined structure, let me know...
