Plate 6 of Robert Melville Grindlay's 'Scenery, Costumes and Architecture chiefly on the Western Side of India'. This picturesque view shows Mount Abu, in the south of Rajasthan, close to the border of Gujarat. Grindlay (1786-1877) was only 17 when he arrived in India in 1803. He served with the Bombay Native Infantry from 1804 to 1820 and during this period made a large collection of sketches and drawings.
