This chromolithograph is taken from plate 23 of William Simpson's 'India: Ancient and Modern'. The Ravi is one of the five rivers of the Punjab. This view of the river is taken from Shahdara, showing the four marble minarets of the tomb of Emperor Jahangir rising above the trees. Shahdara is on the right bank of the Ravi and was the entry point to Lahore from the direction of Kabul and Kashmir. The city of Lahore and the tomb of Maharajah Ranjit Singh are pictured in the distance.
