This is plate 27 from William Hodges' book, 'Select Views in India'. Etawah is situated on the left bank of the river Yamuna and is divided in two parts by a wide ravine. The ravines were formed by the monsoon rain washing away the lowest part of the soil. The town of Etawah held some strategic importance since the Mughal Empire. Successively, it came under the control of the Marathas, the Nawabs of Oudh, and finally, in 1801, the East India Company.
