NEAR THE FORT OF CURRAH, ON THE RIVER GANGES.

The Fort of Currah was formerly of considerable importance. It is situated on high ground on the western bank of the river Ganges, and was attached to a large town of the same name. At present only a few detached parts of the ancient wall of the Fort remain, and but little else left to mark its former consequence. The buildings on the water side are appropriated to the religious purposes of the Hindoos.

Currah is about one hundred miles above the city of Benares, on the opposite side of the river Ganges.
