North view of Sattarah by Baron A. Friedel, London, 1833.

Coloured lithograph of the fort at Satara in Maharashtra by J.H. Lynch from an original sketch by Baron Adam Friedel. Plate 7 of 'Eight Most Splendid Views of India, sketched by an Officer in the Indian Army' printed by Baron A Friedel in London in 1833.

Satara is situated south of Pune in Maharashtra in a valley between two hills near the confluence of the Kistna and Verna rivers. The fort, seen in this view, was a principal centre of Maratha power in the 17th and 18th centuries. In the 19th century, the British established a cantonment at Satara and the Residency was used by the British colonial administrator, Sir Henry Bartle Frere (1815-1879).
