Photograph of Echo Rocks near Cotamputty in Tamil Nadu from the 'Photographic Views of Poodoocottah' (Madras, 1858) collection, taken by Linnaeus Tripe in 1858. Tripe was in charge of one of the battalions of the 12th Madras Native Infantry, a regiment that was stationed in Madras. In 1855, Tripe was commissioned to take photographs for the British East India Company and the Madras Presidency which resulted in six albums, one of which concentrated on Pudukottai and the surrounding area. This view looks towards the massive boulder formations, near Pudukottai on the border of the Tondaiman's country. The area was once a princely state under the rule of the Tondaiman Rajas.
