"Burhanpur, The Suba's House. Drawn by C. Dibden from a sketch by Capt. Meadows Taylor; engraved by J. E. Varrall. Steel engraving, 1840."

From the original description accompanying the engraving:

"The accompanying plate, entitled the Suba's house, represents one of the finest specimens of this kind of building to be found in Boorhanpoor. The lower parts only are supported by masonry, the upper stories being built entirely of wood. The carving is extremely bold, and yet beautifully finished, and represents not only fruit and flowers, but various emblematic devices of birds and beasts. The capitals of the pillars, and the bosses, and cornices, are wonderfully elaborate in design, and delicate  in execution. The house is about a hundred years old, and was built by a Maharhatta Brahmin, who was at that time Suba, or governor of the city. It is still  in the possession  of his family, most of whom are wealthy, and hold offices under Sihndia's government. It is situated at the head of the Raj Bazaar, a broad handsome street, formed by rows of houses, much in the same style of architecture, though somewhat inferior in size and beauty. These are the residences of the principal merchants, who, in the days of Boorhanpoor's commercial glory, were notorious, thoughout India, for their great wealth and power."
