Photographer's Note

I had descended only a few steps of the eastern staircase and I looked to the front. I did not know if I even needed to proceed further. What a feast for the eyes! The decoaration on the retaining wall of the octagonal opening takes the form of floral and geometric motifs, splendidly illuminated by the sun at mid-morning. There is a glimpse of the shrine ahead at the northwestern corner of the landing.

The shadows across the facade are caused by the screening spread across the opening above the landing to keep out the birds and limit faesces.
