[The fac-simile of one of the best native maps, executed by a native artist, which forms the Frontispiece to the present volume, will afford a tolerable idea of the general plan and outline of the city.]

A small Fort, called the French Folly stands in the river a short distance from the south-east comer of the city; another Fort, called the Dutch Folly, stands further up the river.

c. Marks the locality of the Mahommedan mosque, in the old city, near the western gate.

d. A native Pagoda, north of the mosque.

e. A lofty and conspicuous building, called the five-storied Pagoda.
