View of a river lined with a number of multistory buildings along its banks. The Shah Hamdan Mosque, a building with a square base and crowned with a steeple-like structure, is prominently visible on the center right area of the image, while a number of figures look out from a balcony on the opposite bank. Also visible in the background is the Hari Parbat Fort, a fortified complex at the top of a hill. This view is seen from a vantage point in the middle of the river, most likely from a bridge.
