Transcript l^ EXPLANATION OF THE PLATES. 17 LVL A Coolie Chieftain in Guzerat. The engraving is from a drawing of a chieftain, or head of the Coolies, a tribe of robbers and pirates, settled near the river Mihi, in Guzerat, who are particularly mentioned in these Memoirs: the scene of their depredations is principally in the gulph of Cambay, and the navigation between Surat and Bombay. LVIL Specimen of the Inlaid Work in the Taje Mahal at Agra. The Mausoleum, called Taje Mahal, or the "Crown of the Seraglio," at Agra, erected by the Emperor Shah Jehan, in memory of his favourite Sultana Montazal Zumani, " Paragon of the Age," is so fully- described in the Memoirs, that it would be superfluous to add any thing further than that the plate exhibits a fac-simile of the ornaments inlaid in precious stones on the marble and alabaster of the tomb, for many hundred feet. LVIII. The Jumma Musjid, or Grand Mosque at Ahmedabad. The engraving is made from a drawing taken on the spot, of one of the most magnificent buildings in Hindostan, still remaining in perfect repair. The minars, or minarets, are uncommonly beautiful; and the plate conveys a complete idea of this style of Mogul architecture. LIX. Shah Bhaug, a Summer Palace, built by the Emperor Shah Jehan, on the Banks of the Sabermatty. The palace, park, and gardens, at Shah Bhaug, are fully described in the Memoirs, P. 205, Vol. IL This imperial villa was built in the beginning of the seventeenth century, and is still in complete repair. The external decorations and interior apartments exhibit an excellent specimen of Mogul architecture.
