Description:

This is plate 4 from William Hodges' book, 'Select Views in India'. It shows a rest house for caravan travellers at Rajmahal, which Hodges visited in 1781. Located on the west bank of the Ganges, it had at various times been the capital of the eastern provinces the Mughal Empire. It had particularly flourished in the 17th century under the Governor Shah Sujah, son of the Mughal Emperor, Shah Jahan. Hodges was fascinated by the caravanserai, which he found "almost perfect", because it possessed "military strength no less than beauty".
