Another shot from Moran Mountain, taken from north ridge of Nanda Ghunti. It shows sanctuary peaks from that perspective.

From PatalKhan, inner sanctuary. Patal is the very gate, the entry to the inner sanctuary. If it was allowed to go inside, this would be the place you will land up, climb up rather, after Dibrughetta.

This is all very interesting. Is there a good elevation map which shows the area with the names of the peaks?

This is a postcard signed by Willi Unsoeld. Shot is from the base camp. 1976. This was the expedition in which his daughter Nanda Unsoeld died.
This looks like North western angle, though Willi perhaps climbed the peak from south ridge. Will check this one out. Update: He did climb from North west, so this shot is from the base camp itself.

Quote from the source:
"Unsoeld, a prolific climber/explorer and veteran of the successful 1963 American expedition to Everest, first saw the mountain of Nanda Devi in 1949 while trekking in northern India. He was so swept by its beauty that he decided that, should he ever have a daughter, he would name her after that magnificent peak.

In 1976, Willi Unsoeld, Ad Carter, and 22 other members (including Unsoeld’s 22-year-old daughter, Nanda Devi) attempted to climb the mountain. Nanda Devi passed away due to altitude-related causes just before her summit attempt (three members of the team managed to summit the mountain). You can read Nanda Devi’s obituary in the 1977 American Alpine Journal.

This postcard, which includes Nanda Devi’s signature, was mailed about two weeks before her death. It was probably the last time she signed her name."

Hi
There are many, but the best is US2000 ?? Series map...its a contour map from 1955 but very good. Google it and you will get it. I have seen that map posted here also, on IM.
For learning the names of peaks, go to page 2 of this thread. I found that simple map very handy.
Regards
