VIEW OF MUTURA, ON THE RIVER JUMNA.

This view of the ancient town of Mutura is taken from a garden on the opposite side of the river Jumna, somewhat elevated, in which there is a handsome pavilion carefully executed in the modern Mahomedan style. In the centre of the view is seen the fort of Mutura, and to the left the principal mosque. Part of this city is very ancient, and is much frequented by the religious Hindoos, (it being the reported birth-place of Krishna,) for the purpose of bathing in the river Jumna, which is held in high estimation. The Jumna unites with the Ganges at Allahabad. Mutura is about seventy miles southward of Delhi.
