The Daniell brothers have paid wonderful tribute to India through their many works. each of their work is a great master piece. Thanx ramjeebhai for sharing it

Nicely captures the ancient city of Madurai. The modern day Madurai looks a concrete jungle in comparison

Any links to recent pictures of these ruins ? Or its all vanished with time?

who lived in this palace can anyone tell us?

ah, to be able to paint like that!
