Photograph from the Curzon Collection: 'Visit of His Excellency the Viceroy. Kotah, November, 1902' of a street scene and the Patan pole or gateway at Kota, Rajasthan, taken by P.A. Herzog and P. Higgins in November 1902. This view records a perspective looking along a street towards one of the city gates. There were a number of gates in the city as Kota was protected by a fortified wall and divided internally by walls into three districts. The town houses at left have projecting enclosed balconies or jarokhas hung with matting to provide shade and coolness in the interior. This view is one of several street scenes taken in Kota by Herzog and Higgins when they accompanied Lord Curzon on an official visit in November 1902.
