Weekly Photo Challenge: Geometry

Taramati Baradari was a sarai (a caravan station for traders and travelers) as part of Ibrahim Bagh, a Persian style garden built during the reign of Ibrahim Quli Qutub Shah, the second Sultan of Golconda. The Baradari was constructed on the banks of the Musi river. Today, the region comes under the city limits of Hyderabad, India. Taramati Baradari pavilion has 12 doorways and was constructed to allow cross ventilation and is one of the most indigenous techniques to have been used at that time.
