This photograph shows a range of decorative brickwork on the exterior of the mosque. The technique used to insert the glazed blue bricks can clearly be seen. Sadly many of these have now been removed, but the word 'Allah' which they formed can still clearly be seen. Higher up many of the bricks are still in place and the different bonding styles used to create patterns can be clearly seen. Note too, in the tympanum over the little mehrab on the outside, the remains of some glazed terracotta inserts used to make floral patterns.
