Plate 9 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 represents a view of the Chupayan fort. In 1846, before meeting his father in Simla, Charles Hardinge spent "a brief but delightful interval of repose in the far-famed region of romance and poetry - the Valley of Kashmir." This fort was situated near the opening of the Pir Panjal Pass into the valley on the road to the city of Kashmir and was where Maharaja Ranjit Singh gained possession of the Valley from the Afghans in 1819.
