Photograph 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). Besides the formal gardens the Sakar Bagh contained a zoo, which was established in 1863 and renowned today for the successful breeding of Asiatic lions found in the nearby Gir Forest. It also had private houses and this is a view of one of them, known as the “small bungalow” and built in a colonial style.
