Map of Bangalore (1794)
Mirza Firuz Shah
Shah Alam II 1759–1806
Plan of Bangalore (with the attacks) taken by the English Army under the command of the Earl Cornwallis.
The most detailed and accurate early map of Bangalore, and one of the finest plans depicting a major Indian city prior to the influences of contemporary European urban planning:
This fascinating map of Bangalore grants a magnificent impression of a sizeable Indian city prior to it being influenced by European urban models. The large pettah in the upper centre is encircled by an elaborate system of walls and takes on an overall ovoid shape common to many such Indian cities. Within are dense and uneven blocks divided by narrow streets, a labyrinth which was ideal to confuse potential invaders who dared to storm the city. A connecting ovoid palace-fort complex projects off of the main pettah to the south.
