In the photographer's words: "The inner sanctuary of this Mausoleum and the outside uproar of the city is separated by scaled walls which encompasses a modest courtyard. Passing into the courtyard, the chaos is left behind and serenity is offered by the high walls and subtle colors of mosaics. This elderly woman walked through the Mausoleum, without hurry, and we shared gratefulness for this sense of ease and restfulness the enclosure provided."
