Transcript —'— / s / / y 18 EXPLANATION OF THE PLATES. LX. Temple of Fountains, at Cambay. The drawing was taken from a temple of marble, with perforated columns, each supplying a fountain round the dome, as described at large in the work, P. 230, Vol. II. It stood in the centre of a canal in the garden called Dil-Gusha, or the " Expansion of the Heart," belonging to the Cambay Nabob, surrounded by fragrant flowers and aromatic plants; especially the keurah, mogree, roses, jasmin, and double tube roses. LXL The Flowers and young Fruit of the Keurah. This shows more distinctly the blossoms and early fruit of a plant so highly esteemed by the Indians. The men wear the flowers falling gracefully from the turban—the women in various ornaments. LXIL The Fruit of the Keurah. This plate shows the fruit in a ripe state; it is sometimes eaten by the poorest natives ; also the pulp of the stalk in time of famine. LXIII. A Gracia Chieftain, or Rajah, with his Suaree, or usual attendants. This print, taken from a drawing by the Count de Montalembert, gives an excellent idea of the general costume of the inferior Hindoo Rajahs and Princes throughout the greater part of Hindostan ; with the usual appearance of their guards and attendants. LXIV. Ryjee Sihng, a Bhaut in the Zinore Purgunna. This Bhaut was a native of Serulah in Zinore; the head of one of the chief families in that very extraordinary tribe of bards and heralds, described in the Memoirs: and the principal security for the Gracia chieftains in Guzerat.
