Roof of the Sessions Court [in the Palace, Madurai]
Photographer: Tripe, Linnaeus
Medium: Photographic print
This photograph of the roof of the building housing the Sessions Court in the Palace complex, Madurai, Tamilnadu, is part of a collection entitled 'Photographic Views in Madurai ' (Madras, 1858) and was taken by Linnaeus Tripe in 1858. ''This is an external view of the great dome of the Swerga-vitasam taken from the terrace above the hall. It was formerly surrounded by an arcade part of which is now standing. The structure on the right of the view is a lofty arched arched roof over the centre of the arcade on the south side of the Quadrangle. The view of the surrounding country from this terrace is one of great beauty.''
