Engraving of a southerly view of Outtradroog from inside the Pettah in Karnataka by W. Thomas after an original drawing by Claude Martin published by J. Sewell in the European Magazine in 1792. The small fortress of Outtradroog, situated on an inaccessible rock, was of great strategic importance during the late eighteenth century Anglo-Mysore Wars, when the British fought against the Rajas of Mysore Haidar Ali (r.1761-1782) and his eldest son, Tipu Sultan (r.1782-1799). The fort was taken by British forces under Colonel Stuart in June 1791.
