VIEW OF GYAH, AN HINDOO TOWN IN BAHAR.

Gyah is a place of great antiquity, much resorted to by religious Hindoos; there being many temples of high celebrity in the town, and on the neighbouring eminences: the whole together forming a very interesting effect, and presenting many points of view that are extremely picturesque.

A few miles from Gyah are the remains of a college, with a small number of disciples of the religion of Bhood, which religion was prevalent in India before that of the Bramins.

Gyah is distant from Benares one hundred and twenty miles S. E.
