The obelisk is located to the north-west of the fort at Srirangapatna, where the British troop were successful in breaching the fort. It is erected in memory of Josiah Webbe by Dewan Purnayya in AD. 1804. Resting on a small platform, the pillar juts out with a conical top, which also contains a tablet on its eastern face.
