Photographer's Note

I continued walking around the mausoleum at ground level, this time to the west for a view of the western wall of the prayer hall. The central projection accommodates the mihrab, and seven arches are inscribed in the wall reflecting the same on the front; except, as I recall, there are just five open arches in front - but then my recall could be faulty. There are often dead viewing angles in architecture, and the architect has to be unusually creative to minimize them. Here the effort is directed at drawing attention to the top of the structure with elaborate scroll work around the railing, the mosque's dome and the minarets.
