Here Krishna and Radha are shown seated on a beautifully decorated chauki on a terrace of a palace. Krishna is delightfully gazing the face of Radha in a mirror. The terrace overlooks an expanse of lovely landscape, foliage with flowering trees, hill tops bathed in sunrays, a lake with blooming lotuses and aquatic birds.

The drawing is delicate and the figures are well modeled. The color scheme of the painting is brilliant and gold has been used on a lavish scale. The painting is a masterpiece of the Garhwal style.
