Plate six in 'Picturesque Scenery in the Kingdom of Mysore' by James Hunter. This aquatint is based on a picture by Hunter depicting the entrance gate to the Lal Bagh Gardens at Srirangapatnam. Inside this garden is the tomb of Haidar Ali (c.1722-1782), the king of Mysore. It is also the resting placeof his son, Tipu Sultan (1753 -1799). This royal retreat was stocked with many rare and exotic varieties of plants and trees brought from Persia, Afghanistan and France. In 1840 a magnificent glass house was built in the garden modelled on London's Crystal Palace.
