The principai river flowing towards the left is the Hiron, which takes its rise (not far from that of the Narbada) in the more distant hills in the backgroiind. One of its afflirents passes the white temples of the village Pareria. The
Narbada valler meraing into the horizon on the leit, forms ihe wide flat area inthe centre. and is covered with a thick stratum of rich black soil, yielding plentiful harvests. Wheat and johar are the principal products, thougli
little rice is cultivated. The fbreground and the spurs descending from it are composed of red sandstone (the diamond sandstone of these regions), and are covered vvith low jungles, which form the favourite resort of many ga-
zelles, but at the same time harbour a variety of beasts of prey.
