GATE OF A MOSQUE, BUILT BY HAFEZ RAMUT, AT PILLIBEAT.

Hafez Ramut was a Rohilla chief of great respectability. He commanded the forces against Nawaub Sujah ul Dowla, who, assisted by the English, in April one thousand seven hundred and seventy-four, defeated the Rohilias, at which time Hafez lost his life.

The Mosque to which this gate belongs, is a handsome edifice richly ornamented, and as well as this entrance carefully finished, much in the style of the modern buildings of the same class at Delhi.

Pillibeat is N. W. of Lucknow, about one hundred and fifty miles.
