This photograph of the domes and turret in front of the Palace, Madurai, Tamilnadu, is part of a collection entitled 'Photographic Views in Madurai ' (Madras, 1858) and was taken by Linnaeus Tripe in 1858. ''These two domes stand over part of the eastern side of the arcade in the Quadrangle, and the turret over the N.E. corner of the elevated arcade. The terrace is said to have been erected to give the ladies of the palace an opportunity of witnessing the processions from the Temple to the Teppakulam on the Ramnad road.''
