Od course Indians have also worked very well in the detail, especially in stone work.

Glass doesn't work very well does it? I prefer tiles or carving work.

That is Glass (or Mirror) Work, it is still used in some modern religious buildings, like this one in Mashhad:



These pics show the work:

Too colorful, shiny and eye-tiring for my taste but sure is impressive.

This is what is called human scale detail. It is this kind of detail that is lacking in the newer architectural styles.

What is your idea about brickwork? Just bricks, of course buildings were mostly built by bricks!

A wonderful mosque in Isfahan:



The project as an Islmaic wonder was strated by al-Mu'tasim around 837 AD, it is said the step by step process of building this mosque was designed by the great mathematician al-gorithm.

I have to post large pics to see the details:

with bricks it's even more impressive, because you really have to build delicately, instead of to decorate well

I love brick churches for the same reason - it's much more direct than plaster - which is a bit the 'make-up' of a building

This one is quite famous for intricate stonework: Patwon ki haveli in Jaisalmer, built by rich merchants back in the 19th century.

The fact is that even photography is not permitted inside the mosque but there is also a smaller mosque named "Ali-ibn-Hamzeh" which is very similar to this one and I think tourists can take photos and even videos there,you can watch a clip here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CslBXcCd438
