Workshop Note

Charminar (meaning "four towers" = minarets) was built in 1591. The purpose of this building is unclear, but it is generally accepted (according to Wikipedia) that it was meant to commemorate the eradication of plague. The construction of Charminar also coincided with the beginning of the second Islamic millennium.
