Scenery among the Sacred Hindoo Groves at Chandode.
This view contains some of the smaller dewals, or temples, under the
Ficus Indica, and groves of Mango and Pepal trees, on the banks of the
river Nerbudda, where the Brahmins pass their lives in voluptuous indolence, with the female choristers, and dancing girls. Sacred bulls stray
unmolested, and monkeys are cherished, while the poor outcast Chandalah
is not permitted to enter, nor even to breathe the surrounding atmosphere.

View on Bancoote River, in the Concan, from Dazagon Hill.
The drawing of this delightful scene was taken from the summit of a
lofty hill, near the hot-wells of Dazagon, forming almost a bird's-eye view.
The wifrding of the river was peculiarly beautiful, forming many islands,
cultivated and inhabited ; the landscape altogether presenting a pleasing
picture of the best part of the Concan, or Cokun, which means the low
country, compared with the Deccan, situated above the Gaut mountains.
