You notice three things. One, how the corner column is cut flush with the top where the walls had disintegrated when fired upon prior to the installation of the current front wall. Two, notice the completely two different styles of walls. The side walls and the rear wall is more representative of the older building style like that seen in the earlier stone construction photo of a building in the previous article, contrasted with the more delicate Islamic carving on the front wall (I did see cracks forming at the front wall, especially around the corner pillars, whereas I didn’t see near as many cracks along the plain walls). Third, you will notice along the front edge of the side walls where new stone was spliced into to replace missing stone piece to support the newer front wall.
