Description

Partial view of the dome and two-tiered arcade in the courtyard of the Chaharbagh Madrasa (compare with dome in B02.075 and B02.082). The dome is "adorned with intertwining black, yellow and white arabesques on a turquoise blue base [and] also has the traditional alternate bands of lapis lazuli blue and calligraphic inscriptions on its drum. The previous emphasis on floral patterns is reduced in favor of a simpler contrast between yellow brickwork and inset tile mosaic panels." -MA (Source: "Madar-i Shah Complex." Archnet.
