14 x 22 inch (h x w)
Hand coloured lithograph

A view of the Navaratna Temple or the Black Pagoda in Chitpore Bazaar drawn by Charles D’Oyly for Views of Calcutta and its environs. The temple which was built by the notorious zamindar and deputy collector Govindaram Mitter was constructed between 1730-31. The temple was affected by numerous cyclones and earthquakes before it finally collapsed sometime before 1813. D’Oyly captures the temple in its already dilapidated state with trees growing in its towers.
