Description

The Punjab is a vaguely defined historical, cultural, and social region in northern India that includes portions of neighboring Pakistan and Afghanistan. Well irrigated with numerous rivers, the region includes a fertile valley which provided the cradle for numerous early civilizations.

It was also one of the last regions to fall under the dominion of the British East India Company, and remained nominally independent under the authority of the Sikh Empire around the time of this map’s publication. It prominently features the Indus River and its various tributaries, and uses finely engraved hachure to depict the region’s rugged topography.
