Pencil drawing of a landscape at Bisauli by Thomas (1749-1840) and William (1769-1837) Daniell, 19 May 1789. Inscribed on the back in ink is: 'Near Bisoula Fort. May 19. 1789.'
Bisauli first came to importance under Dunde Khan, a lieutenant of Ali Muhammad and Hafiz Rahmat Khan, the celebrated Rohilla chiefs, who built a fort here c. 1750. Near the town is Dunde Khan’s tomb which stands on a commanding spot overlooking the broad valley of the Sot.
