Plate 19 from the fourth set of Thomas and William Daniell's 'Oriental Scenery,' which they called 'Twenty-four Landscapes.' The views progress northwards from the far south at Cape Comorin to Srinagar in Garhwal in the Himalaya mountains. Arrived in the valley of the village of Badel, the artists noted that it '...is pleasantly situated on a delicious stream of liquid crystal, called the Ramgunga...It being the time of harvest when this view was taken, and the corn gathered in, the mode of treading out the grain by the feet of cattle, is represented in the foreground, and also the collecting and winnowing it; all which operations are performed in the open air.' In fact the river is the Nayar, not the Ramganga.
