No. II.


Rajah Rotas, an Hindoo prince, has the reputation of having completed the massy works of this extensive fortress, on the top of which there are a considerable number of respectable buildings. The present view is part of the palace, the centre building was a hall of audience, the style of architecture is that which prevailed in the time of the Emperor Ackbar, when the solid taste of the ancient Hindoos was yet discernible.

In the first series of Oriental Scenery will be found other views taken from this fort.
