This lithograph is taken from plate 16 of 'General Views of Lucknow' by Sir DS Dodgson. In the siege of 1857 at Lucknow these buildings were held by Sir Colin Campbell whilst the British evacuated the Residency. The structure on the left is the Kadam Rasul (meaning prophet's footprint) a place of worship built by Nawab Ghazi-ud-din-Haider on an artificial mound. According to Dodgson, it contained a stone with an imprint of the foot of the prophet brought by a pilgrim from Arabia, which disappeared during the rebellion. The view also shows the Shah Najaf and Moti Mahal, and on the extreme right is the Chattar Manzil.
