Photograph of the Muktaghat, on the Gumti River at Jaunpur, Uttar Pradesh, from the Archaeological Survey of India Collections, taken by an unknown photographer in 1888. This is a view of an ornamental ghat on the River Gumti at Jaunpur. Jaunpur was the capital of the Sharqi dynasty which was founded after the collapse of the Delhi Sultanate in the late 1390s. Although the dynasty lasted for less than a century, the rulers were active patrons of architecture and their capital Jaunpur became a thriving centre for scholars and saints during the 15th century.
