Photograph of the interior of a house in the Sakar Bagh at Junagadh in Gujarat, taken by the travelling commercial photographer F. Nelson in the 1890s from the Lee-Warner Collection: 'Photographs of Junagadh'. The Sakar Bagh is situated three and a half kilometres (two miles) north of Junagadh and is one of several public gardens in the environs of the city. Its design and creation is attributed to Nawab Mahabat Khan II (r.1851-1882). In addition to formal gardens the Sakarbagh contained private houses and a zoo, renowned today for the successful breeding of Asiatic lions. This is a view of the interior of a house in the Sakar Bagh, showing a long corridor adorned with pictures and furnishings in an Anglo-Indian style.
