Plate 18 from '24 Views in Indostan by William Orme'. This engraving is based on a picture by Thomas Daniell (1749-94) and depicts the 16th Century bridge crossing the Gomti River at Jaunpur. In 1803 Francis Blagdon said the following about this bridge.'The sound principles upon which it was built are evident from its having withstood, for such a length of time, the force of the stream, which in the rainy season is very considerable. The inundations have frequently been known to rise even above the bridge, insomuch that in the year 1774, a whole brigade of British forces passed over it in boats.'
