Title: Char Minar, or the Four Minarets. 1591
Author(s): Frederic, Louis
Photographer: Arthur Llewellyn Basham
Keywords: Provincial Sultanates-- Deccan-- Hyderabad;architecture
Series/Report no.: Basham Collection
Description: This gate has 4 entrances & contains a little mosque on first storey. It measures 100 feet on each side at its base. Minarets are 185 feet high, & are reminiscent of those of the Gol Gumbad of Bijapur, but they are much more graceful & their style is more refined. On the other hand, the abundance of ornamentation spoils the total effect.
