Medium: Photographic print
Photograph from the 'Curzon Collection: Album of views of Udaipur and Chittaurgarh', of the Sujjian Niwas Gardens and Victoria Hall, at Udaipur, Rajasthan, taken by an unknown photographer during the 1900s. The Sujjan or Sajjan Niwas gardens in the foreground are situated to the south-east of the City Palace. The Victoria Hall, seen in distant view, was built in an Indo-Saracenic style to commemorate the Golden Jubilee of Queen Victoria in 1887 by the Public Works Department of Udaipur. It originally housed a museum for the indigenous products of Mewar and a library. On the horizon are the hills surrounding Udaipur.
