No. XXIII.

SOUTH EAST VIEW OF TRITCHINOPOLY.

In this view of the rock of Tritchinopoly, the Hindoo temple, occurring in Plates XIX. and XX., is represented on that part by which it is entered. The numerous flights of steps, and different buildings to be passed through, both open and enclosed, in ascending the rock, give an awful and grand effect to its approach. The buildings higher up are the Choultries attached to the temple, where devout persons resort after performing their religious duties.
