Plate 7 from "Recollections of India. Part 2. Kashmir and the Alpine Punjab" by James Duffield Harding (1797-1863) after Charles Stewart Hardinge (1822-1894), the eldest son of the first Viscount Hardinge, the Governor General. This depicts a view of Jamu with the residence of Maharaja Gulab Singh on the banks of a tributary to the Chunab with mountains in the background and a hunting party in the foreground. Within 18 months of Henry Hardinge's arrival in India as Governor-General, the First Anglo-Sikh War broke out in December 1845. Hardinge and his son, Charles travelled throughout northern India and stayed at this fort which was the residence of Gulab Singh, an ally of the British appointed Maharaja after the Treaty of Lahore, March 1846.
