Surrender of Dost Mohammed Khan

October 31, 1840
Mirza Firuz Shah
Bahadur Shah II 1837–1857

Surrender of Dost Mohammed Khan



"Hay Macnaghten Bart, at the Entrance into Caubul from Killa-Kazee" This view shows the road leading from the camp to Kabul in the valley of Qila-Qazi. It was here that Dost Mohammed suddenly gave himself up in November 1840. Atkinson wrote: "The road from Killa-Kazee is very confined, hemmed in by huge masses of rock on the left hand and dense groves of mulberry trees on the right." On Mohammed's surrender: "This event occurred while the British Envoy was taking his accustomed ride, attended by his staff, and totally unconscious of any intention on the part of the Dost, to surrender himself" 


Atkinson, James (1780 - 1852)

Very good information.


The Mughal Images immediately took a much greater interest in realistic portraiture than was typical of Persian miniatures. Animals and plants were the main subject of many miniatures for albums and were more realistically depicted. To upload your images click here.
