Things to do

It has the curvature of the cornice which gives the building a pleasing appearance. We will have to watch the two cornice bands, running all round the building are enriched with rows of lozenges, while the sunken space in between them still depicts ornamental square panels at several places. The corner towers, divided by moulded bands, depict such decorative motifs as lozenges, lotus petals and pellets.
