The Mississippi arrived in Ceylon on March 10, 1853. The Narrative describes a Buddhist temple (not named) "...of great antiquity and so much venerated as to attract votaries from various parts of India." This lithograph is placed adjacent to this comment. While in Ceylon, Commodore Perry entertained the Siamese Prince Phar-Pen-Clow-Chow-Yon-Hon, who was the second in rank in the Kingdom, aboard the Mississippi. The Prince was in Ceylon accompanying Buddhist priests on a pilgrimage to this temple. The Mississippi departed Ceylon on the 15th.
