Group of five Hara Rajputs posed at the base of a tree taken by Eugene Clutterbuck Impey in the early 1860s, from the Archaeological Survey of India Collections. Impey wrote in 'Delhi, Agra, and Rajpootana, illustrated by eighty photographs' (London, 1865): 'The Haras are the most important of the twenty-four branches of the Chohan tribe of Rajpoots, and are descended from Manikrae, King of Ajmere, who encountered the first Mahometan invaders in A.D. 685...'. This print is a duplicate of plate 68(a) of Impey's publication. Impey had been employed by the Government of Indian to record the tribes and castes of Delhi Agra and Rajasthan as part of a wider survey of the people and monuments of India.
