Rasulkhanji, Navab Junagadha. 1900', of the Sardar Bagh at Junagadh, Gujarat, taken by the Solankee Studio, Rajkot, in c.1900. The creation of the Sardar Bagh is attributed to Sardarkhan, Foujdar of Sorath, in 1681. It was later enlarged by Nawab Mahabat Khan II (ruled 1851-1882). Under his reign the city was developed and improved with a series of new palaces, public buildings and parks. This view looking across the Sardar Bagh shows a baradari pavilion and formal gardens in the foreground, with a block of lion cages in the background.
