Photograph of Queen's College, Benares from the Kitchener of Khartoum Collection: 'Views of Benares. Presented by the Maharaja of Benares' by Madhao Prasad, c.1905.

New buildings (pictured) were built in a Gothic style between 1847-52 to the designs of Major Kittoe. The fa├žade was decorated with Chunar stone which was carved and engraved with inscriptions in the Nagari character.
