Plate nine from '24 views in Indostan by William Orme'. This picture is based on an original by Thomas Daniell (1749-1840) and depicts Hosur, a small town near to Bangalore. When this picture was made there was an encampment, represented in the distance, consisting of a detachment of Lord Cornwallis's army commanded by Major Woodburne of Madras. According to the accompnaying text, the temple on the right in the foreground was used as a resting place to 'afford cool and comfortable retreats for sun-burnt travellers.'
