This is plate 14 from William Hodges' book 'Select Views in India'. Rajmahal, a small town on the west bank of the Ganges, had at various times been the capital of the eastern provinces the Mughal Empire. It had particularly flourished in the 17th century under the governorship of Shah Sujah, the third son of the Mughal Emperor, Shah Jahan. Hodges considered this mosque to be of considerable historical interest to the British, because, "on the night succeeding the battle of Odooa-Nullah the whole of the British part of the army, after the pursuit of the enemy's forces, were lodged in this building".
