PART OF THE PALACE, MADURA.

The Palace of Madura is said to be principally the work of Tremal Naig, Rajah of Madura; at least it may be supposed to have been repaired and beautified by him, who was an Hindoo prince of considerable power and wealth, as appears by the many edifices attributed to him in this neighbourhood. In this building appears a great mixture of the Hindoo and Mahommedan styles of architecture, a circumstance not so frequently occurring in this part of India, as on the banks of the Ganges.

Madura is in lat. 9° 50’ north, long. 78° 10’ east. About three hundred and seven miles from Madras.

The views of Madura were taken in the month of July, 1792.
