Request for information on trilithons at Adyar

I'm planning to write a short historical piece about the trilithons
on the Adyar estate, and want to know if anyone on this list knows of
a source of information about them.
A trilithon is an arch made of 3 pieces of stone in a rectangular
shape and there are 5 of them at Adyar, carved with various beings
and figures. The little information I have says they were obtained by
Colonel Olcott from one or more princes in the neighborhood. They are
very weighty, so it must have been a considerable effort to move them
and re-erect them.
There's extremely little about them on the internet, from an initial
search, so a few comments from the historically-minded on the list,
some references, or the names of people who might have the
information in their collections, would be very appreciated.
