A galaxy under the dome

Looking above in Shah Jahan’s mosque in Thatta, Sindh. Huge dome full of geometric patterns tied to complex structure surly conveys the message of depth often associated to galaxies. Mosque was commissioned by Mughal Emperor, Shah Jahan in 1647. Mosque has great heritage value for Pakistan and world.
